SETI man professes doubts

Astronomer Seth Shostak, with the SETI Institute, weighs in on the UFO debate in an essay at today. Shostak says:
Sure, rather few researchers have themselves gone into the field to sift through the stories, the videos, and the odd photos that comprise the evidence for alien presence. But they don’t have to. This complaint is akin to telling movie critics that films would be better if only they would pitch in and get behind the camera.

The burden of proof is on those making the claims, not those who find the data dubious.
