The UK's Daily Mirror today recounts the much recycled story of an alleged Close Encounter of the Third Kind in the 1950s between President Ronald Reagan and an alien being.
The Mirror reports that, according Hollywood legend Shirley MacLaine, Reagan "confided in actress Lucille Ball that he had a close encounter in LA in the 50s. Lucille told Shirley he’d been on the way to a party with wife Nancy when a UFO landed and an alien emerged telling Ron to quit acting and take up politics."
Losing Reagan was a mercy for Hollywood, but a curse on Washington... proof that aliens aren't so bright after all?
