That article is not online, as you would know by now if you had done what I
did (on your behalf) and consulted a Web search engine. On the other hand,
you might try asking Dejanews for posts that combine `Dogon' and `Sirius'.
There is a long thread which deals with most of the obvious points.

But hey, don't knock yourself out. Who knows, if you keep asking somebody
might drop by your school with a free library of skeptical texts. Look,
why don't I just fly over from Australia with a copy of BROCA'S BRAIN and
read it to you at home?
