    Daily Quote
    “There was all kinds of stuff — small beams about three-eighths or a half-inch-square with some sort of hieroglyphics on them that nobody could decipher. These looked something like balsa wood, and were about the same weight, except that they were not wood at all. They were very hard, although flexible, and would not burn….” - Major Jesse Marcel
