March 24, 2007: Go Ahead And Talk To E.T.

A persistent legend spread at SF conventions is that US law makes it illegal to talk to space aliens. Cameron Tuttle's excellent Paranoid's Pocket Guide (scary book, highly recommended) repeats this story. But in fact, that's not what Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations actually says (and it's been repealed anyway). See the master debunkers at snopes.com for the details.
