Wheelie bins and Mars link

The Herald - - OPINION -

FUR­THER to re­cent re­ports from your cor­re­spon­dents de­tail­ing the dis­turb­ing, aber­rant and in­deed, as I be­lieve, sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour of their wheelie bins, I think it is time for the pub­lic to face the re­al­ity be­hind the ap­par­ently ran­dom in­ci­dents that have caused such wide­spread anx­i­ety (Let­ters, De­cem­ber 1, 4&7 ).

The Gov­ern­ment and its agen­cies, in an ef­fort to dampen down pub­lic con­cern and avoid panic, have too long de­nied as fan­ci­ful, what have been cat­e­gorised as con­spir­acy the­o­ries of alien in­volve­ment.

It is be­com­ing ever clearer that these the­o­ries must now be recog­nised as fact and that these ap­par­ently in­nocu­ous do­mes­tic ob­jects are in re­al­ity not “bins” but Pods, de­signed to cap­ture ex­am­ples of hu­man be­ings and trans­port them to an­other planet.

The alarm­ing in­ci­dents in which your cor­re­spon­dents have been in­volved is surely ev­i­dence enough that that the “bins” are un­der the control of sen­tient be­ings; and it is no co­in­ci­dence that they have re­cently be­come “ac­ti­vated” fol­low­ing the re­cent “in­va­sion” of Mar­tian air space by the Mars Lan­der.

It is with some re­lief that we hear of the brave es­cape of Thelma Edwards from im­mi­nent trans­porta­tion. She would have been a great loss to the Let­ters


On the other hand, she would have been an ex­cel­lent, if in­vol­un­tary, am­bas­sador for us earth­lings in rep­re­sent­ing the more civilised sec­tion of the pop­u­la­tion of our trou­bled planet.

IN these dif­fi­cult and un­cer­tain times it is cheer­ing to read the hu­mor­ous con­tri­bu­tions from R Rus­sell Smith and Thelma Edwards, par­tic­u­larly her lat­est escapade with her bin.
