And in the movies, scientists would be crawling over this woman's house, trying to get to the bottom of it. Top men would be measuring and taking notes, computing the trajectory and possible velocity of the object from the impact area,in an attempt to determine it's origin.

In real life, she stuck the piece of ice in her freezer, so that when the claims adjuster came over she would have something to show him. Apparently she was worried that he might think she had, like so many people before her, faked a meteor strike in an attempt to defraud the insurance company.
Shouldn't there be a federal department of investigating large things which fall from the sky and into my living room? I feel strangely unsafe. I was expecting that, should a 50 lb. object, probably ejected from a cloaked UFO skimming through the atmosphere and filled with deadly bacteria never before seen on earth, fall into my house, at the very least I and my entire family would mysteriously vanish, spirited away in unmarked white vans, as an arsonist torches our house to cover up the incident.
I pay taxes, I demand an efficient hyper paranoid super secret government agency. I'm writing to my representatives in Washington.
