Retired Senator John Glenn has confirmed to reporters that the statement he made on the Frasier television program to the effect that he had ?seen things? during his Gemini mission was correct.
The Senator was said to be 'confused' to discover that Frasier is a situation comedy. ?The senator saw a news desk and microphones, and concluded that he was on a news program. He made his statement in complete good faith, based on the fact that NASA publicists had assured him that Frasier was a ?'hard news' venue.?
Senator Glenn has not watched television in some years, due to recurrent bouts of Muniere?s Syndrome that have followed his shuttle journey. Muniere?s Syndrome is a disease of the inner ear that causes vertigo.
