Subject: Bob Pratt's Website Online


I haven't seen it mentioned here yet, but Bob Pratt's personal
website is now online. For many years, Pratt was an ardent
investigator for the National Enquirer tabloid newspaper, and
although we all have likely the same opinion of that paper's
style and handling of UFOs, most people don't know that Pratt's
actual investigations were thorough, detailed and susbstantive.
Even according to Bob, what was printed often bore no
resemblance to what he submitted to the editor. I have many
trascripts of his interviews with UFO witnesses, and his
subsequent write-ups, and I can say that his journalism was at a
level far above what we usually see today.

Bob's website is chock full of his stories of case investigations,
hair-raising flights over the Brazilian jungles, meetings with
extraordinary people and the way ufology developed over the years.

At the very least, it's a great autobiography of one of
ufology's most prominent advocates. How many names of regular
posters on UFO mailing lists can you find in the stories and
acknowledgements? Okay, so he spelled "Edmonton" wrong.
