I wonder what the attraction could be. Do they think Texas is representative of the rest of the planet? Maybe they're joyriding redneck-like aliens that feel some sort of kinship with the small Texas town they've been frequenting. Or maybe, they knew it would be the perfect town to buzz since the rest of the world would never believe the stories coming out of a small town in a state that gave us our current genius of a world leader. Generally, the folks who claim to have seen a UFO or claim to have been abducted by aliens are not well-respected intellectuals or authority figures. The aliens seem to prefer the other end of the human demographic spectrum. Guess they found a high concentration in Stephenville, Texas.
Here is my favorite quote from the story:
teve Allen, a 50-year-old pilot, was at a campfire with friends and says the object was a mile long and half a mile wide. "I don't know if it was a biblical experience or somebody from a different universe or whatever but it was definitely not from around these parts," Allen said.
... not from around these parts. Undoubtedly.
