Additionally, I think he may (arguably) be the single researcher to have had a substantive metaphoric ode (iidssm) written about him, by a poet of any stripe, highlighting his unique philosopher/warrior spirit, solid contribution, and monumental integrity. I'm glad to hear that he's continuing to get the recognition that he richly deserves. >Among the many people we interviewed (and kudos here to Kevin >Randle and Don Ledger for their insights, which form an >invaluable part of the film) was Karl Pflock. Certainly a wonderful opportunity for Mr. Pflock to appear reasonable, but moot, really. Truth is? There's just not a whole lot that can be said bad about Stanton Friedman. >Having met and interviewed the man (at length), and read his >book (as well as extensive research in general about the Roswell >case), I feel obliged to state, given some of the recent posts >about him, that I was impressed by his candor and willingness to >be open in front of the camera, even when the questions were >rather pointed. I'll bet he was the _soul_ of perspicacious good behavior. I've been told I give a good interview myself. <g>. >He struck me as a conscientious researcher, with a genuinely >open-minded point of view (which is not to say I agreed with him Perhaps he's an acquired taste, but over the years he's struck me to as close to the antithesis of your assessment as one could get and not be running hard the other direction... I understand that OBL (or UBL if you want to twist the knife like Rupert Murdoch) has a very ironic conscientious effect on people in direct contact with him that is cubed from what he might be able to transmit on television (a metaphor, and not a direct comparison... please). Perhaps Mr. Phlock is an adept at turning on a required charm... the result of his training, out there, at the farm. <g>. >- I remain, to coin one of Stan's phrases, a "healthy agnostic" >on Roswell), and a refreshing refreshing willingness to admit to >his mistakes. Astonishing. I'm looking forward to meeting him someday myself, but I'll be wearing a tinfoil helmet just to be on the safe side. <g>. >Most important, his recent book challenges us all to take a >closer look at the Roswell case, and re-examine our own >opinions. Whether you agree with Plock's conclusions or not, >that is most definitely a good thing, and a positive >contribution to the debate, especially for those of us who >remain fascinated "lurkers". I'd agree whole heartedly with you sir, I really would, but that I have this nagging (not completely unsupported) suspicion in my artist's heart that Mr. Phlock is more interested in the cessation of the aggregate investigation (That Mr. Friedman has worked so tirelessly for) than he is a "closer look" you perceived. Fact is? There's no _real_ looking to begin with, you see (for very suspicious reasons), and any argument against the base validity of a very real and historically demonstrable ufological investigation is _the_ antithesis of what Mr. Friedman is about, IMO. In hyperbole, Friedman is for a ufological Manhattan Project and the spirited exploration of the extra-terrestrial! Pflock champions the militarization of space and a contrived view on what he labels foolish. Friedman looks up! Pflock looks over. >To paraphrase Stan once again, everyone should avoid attacking >the person, and focus instead on the data (rule #3 for >debunkers, I think). With respect, sir, that's pot kettle black, and the results of living in a glass house. Looking forward to the documentary, and thank you sir.
