It's people like that who make it very hard on less
"credentialed" witesses and ultimately prevent the truth from
coming out. They must speak out.

One of my examples is two science professors at a midwestern
university who had a sighting that blew their scientific minds,
and they knew what they were looking at was not of this earth.

They started to report it, but chickened out.

Jim McDonald interviewed them and got the story in confidence.

Now, I have never violated a UFO-related confidence in 50 years,
but I have been strongly tempted in this case. I can't help but
consider them to be moral cowards. Other people suffer because
of their inaction. They probably are retired by now (if still
alive), and I know their names.

Maybe I will out them in my memoirs (if anyone ever wants to
publish my memoirs).
