What makes this story work for me are the key elements – sex, drugs, rock and roll, and Los Angeles. Who would not think that this mix had an ET or two lingering around? Actually as one who keeps up with California news I think many denizens of Los Angeles have dual citizenship – outer space and US.
Here’s an alternative explanation. Perhaps the abduction was a spur of the moment act of stoned fans trying out their new chemical protective suits and gas masks. I hear that West Coast sales of those two items are through the roof with the Japanese disaster.
Between Japanese vapors wafting in and the San Andreas Fault tipping the state into the Pacific Californians just cannot catch a break. Call the mother ship!
