Personally,I have nothing against the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. But I’d put in 30 years bouncing around the professional broadcast business and had had a hard time enough finding intelligent life on Earth, much less finding it out among the stars. I think it’s safe to say I’m with Clarke in that I don’t believe there are any advance aliens within listening distance of humanity — otherwise they’d have been here already and exterminated us on account of the noise.-Brad R. Torgeson, The Bullfrog Radio Astronomy Project, published in the October 2011 Analog Science Fiction and Fact
