Dear Madame L,

I have a friend who really believes in Sasquatch, based on some ridiculous reality TV show where these so-called scientists are going out at night and doing so-called research, looking for the creature. 

My friend showed me an episode online, and I couldn't believe it. It was like those ghost-hunters or something, with hand-held cameras and night-vision goggles, scary noises, and so on. Or like one of those teen horror flicks, where they go into the dark house at night, and they're the only ones who are stupid enough not to know something terrible is going to happen.

Please tell me you're not a believer! And give me some evidence to share with my friend.



Dear Skeptic,

Madame L reminds you that it's very difficult (impossible) to give evidence that any thing or phenomenon does not exist. In addition, Madame L  is no expert on Sasquatch (Bigfoot) or any of its putative cousins, the Yeti, the Yowie, the Fouke Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, or any of them. 

Like you, Madame L has heard the stories and seen at least bits of the footage of so-called sightings, many of which are available (ubiquitous) on YouTube. Madame L has recently also been introduced to a little-known (and justifiably so) movie about Bigfoot, the trailer of which she hereby shares with you:

You might want to check on YouTube for videos of supposed sightings of the creature from all over the U.S.  And let Madame L know what you think.  (Madame L must admit that she finds major flaws in all of them.)

Stay tuned for more, as Madame L will be writing more about this subject in coming days.

Meanwhile, hang on to your skepticism.

Somewhat Sincerely, 

Madame L

Whatcha mean? Them home-baked hand-held Documentaries by them city-fouke monkey-suit-huntin' scientist wannabees? Where they fill in the hour around the 4-second growl in the dark with them talkin' and talkin' about how theys such brave guys?
