COLUMBIA — People across the Midwest reported seeing a ball of fire streaking across the night sky at about 10 p.m. Wednesday.

But no one in Columbia reported the fireball to Public Safety Joint Communications.

Did you see the fireball? What was your reaction?

It's whatever the 'kept press' tells us it is. Please stop asking citizens to think for themslves they might get undue brain strain. What ever it is (and people are sighting these things alot more often, recently over Canada) it is anything BUT something having to do with any weapons systems. Those things just don't exist, so get that completely out of your mind, you are free to speculate in any other area, but that one is off limits. You know quite well that if these things had anything to do with classified weapons systems O'reilly or perhaps Olberman would have already informed you. So just sit back and relax citizen, and rest your mind the Ministry of Truth will have a prepared answer for you shortly.
