STEPHEN MARLEY'S *MIND CONTROL*
"Having the last name 'Marley' has nothing to do with being the son of a musical icon or an heir to a throne. It does, however, have everything to do with being an individual with a purpose.
"Stephen hammers this point home with the release of MIND CONTROL – his highly anticipated solo debut. Music heads have been up on his work for years, whether for collaborations with R&B stars like Erykah Badu or his part on the dancehall burner 'It Was Written,' and especially after Chant Down Babylon, the platinum-selling star-studded Bob Marley tribute he produced.

Alex, I hope this is really you. Just wanted to thank you for publishing and writing what you have about this. I found you because I, too, was attacked for delving too deeply into a certain subject about what is going on in our skies. A very touchy subject it seems with a number of .mil, .gov, and .edu groups. Have you had any similiar experiences with regards to this subject? If not, what specifically do you think caused you to be targetted?
Thank you for the comments.
I was on the radio in Carmel in 1988 talking about sensitive subjects, specifically human experimentation. That landed me in hot water. But if you do this work right, people come out of the woodwork to make your life difficult.
