Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)

. . . (on Coast to Coast AM) that political correctness permeates the entire universe.  It turns out that we are not to refer to the beings removed from the Roswell craft and other crashed extraterrestrial vehicles as aliens or ETs or---God forbid---"spacemen."  No, to avoid offending the memory of these long dead and very possibly nonexistent personages, we are to refer to them as "little men."  Mostly what this will do is demonstrate to ourselves and each other our politically correct sensibilities, and after all, PC has really always been about us, not them   It's about how we feel about ourselves after having been bastards to them for however many eons.  And calling them a PC-acceptable name is infinitely easier than actually changing our perceptions of them or our behavior toward them.  Whew, that was close!  Thank God, I'm still my hero.
