There seems no doubt that we will want to soften this a bit. I'll send the script later with my notes to see what you and Owen think. P.R. and 'narrative management' are not my expertise.

On one hand, if we let too much information out, the whole narrative could get away from us and invite some unwelcome speculation. At the same time, if we squeeze the story too tightly, we leave room for somebody else to seize the story. Optimally, we could live comfortably on the fringe and be able to pretty quickly debunk this as 'tinfoil hat' stuff. Let's get Ken Owen on this.

It worries me because it is so 'on the nose.' We really do need a policy for how much of the truth about Exotic Matter we want to release. I know that it is 'out there', but at present, its pretty much contained to scientific journals and fringe groups. It has not caught the public eye. Calvin
