Some funny lines, as I’d expect from Billy.

The beginning is what’s significant:

Biggest story of the year? The historic, government-level partnership between France and Chile, hands down. We’re talking about a trans-Atlantic bridge of aerospace engineers, physicists, astronomers and military resources, bringing transparency and skills to bear on the most mysterious and elusive challenge of the modern age. Unprecedented. And the media didn’t even show up to make fun of it. Amazing. No network blowdrys to announce “And now, for a real out-of-this-world development!” No wire services to work the ol’ tongue-in-cheek lead: “Although France and Chile speak different languages, their scientists are now joining forces to try to decipher Little Green Men.”

Should be interesting … especially if the Chileans can penetrate genuine secret information from places like Argentina as well.
