You know that awkward moment when you think you know someone - say, an Olympia police sergeant - when all of a sudden he pulls out a grainy photo of a light in the sky (probably created by the camera's own flash) and lectures about UFOs and making contact with aliens via your microwave or something? James Clarkson spent a career as an Olympia police sergeant interviewing crime victims, collecting evidence from crime scenes, auto wrecks and autopsies - and then met respected, no-nonsense June Crain who could prove she worked in secret laboratories at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and who told him about UFO crashes, alien bodies, and how the cover-up works. Clarkson penned Tell My Story - June Crain, the Air Force & UFOs. Upon retiring, he joined the Mutual UFO Network in 1986 and is now the Washington state director. All this UFO talk is giving Bobble Tiki a woodie. Oh man, Bobble Tiki loves stories about conspiracy theories, aliens, cover-ups, lizard people from the 5th dimension walking among us. Did you know Bobble Tiki spent some time wandering around the Nevada desert, searching for clues and bunkers and spacecraft wreckage and secret codes written on tablets of transparent zirconium? He believes. Bobble Tiki will tell Clarkson about his findings Oct. 29 when the UFO director discusses the history of UFOs in the Northwest at the Lakewood Pierce County Library. Clarkson will surely pen, Tell His Story - Bobble Tiki, Peyote & Special Agent Art Garfunkel.
