Subject: MUFON Paper by Jeff Sainio


I am in receipt of your paper from 2002 MUFON, which I received
via snail-mail from Bill Hamilton.

At first blush it seems very thorough and well thought out. You
make good points about both scientific procedure and ethical
insights that I was pleased to see for a general audience.

This is a paper that warrants and deserves, careful reading,
which I will do and provide technical comments in a later

I would be skeptical of your approach to UFO picture testing,
(if it were based only on your degreed studies in computer
science) were it not for your background in both broadcast
television and the complexities of pre-press and printing.

Your combination of academic and (advanced) practical
engineering implies that you have developed the requisite
antecedents to do this work.

I did read your Patents at the on-line Patent Office and I am
aware that you are a registered Patent Agent.

So... I am not skeptical of your capabilities to test images and
make proper postulates about how they may have been hoaxed.

Moreover, I am interested to discover the appropriate
application of your theories of image processing to the problem
of discovery of hoaxes in UFOlogy, be it Mexico City or New York

Hopefully, the procedures that you prepared for this paper are
existent in the application of each and every picture that you

I will continue to assume that the integrity you appear to have
prevails over your beliefs or your opinions when testing these

Do expect to see a rather technical inquiry from me, after I
have read your paper in detail and concur with your techniques.

I will continue to send you images that I receive - for your
