Thank you Dick Hall!

I could pull my whiskers out with frustration at the number of
super credible witnesses I've met who could put this issue to
rest without batting an eye!

(Yes I have regrown my whiskers. One of the girls I worked with
at Parascope once asked why ufologists have the coolest beards )

As I write this, I've finally gotten the phone number to one of
the photogs who worked with me years ago at a newspaper. He
should know all the ins and outs of what happened UFO related
and should have pics and know where the other photogs are at. He
works for a big paper now and is highly regarded in his field.

I recall the fellow as an upbeat, gung-ho type who bucked
the system many a time. If he's not mellowed with age he
should provide some additional data to my accounts.

We'll see.

Conidentiality is a plus and a hinderance. Never can breach
thatt trust unless someone's life was in jeopardy, and then
some.

Since life and limb aren't the issue of UFO sightings and
abductions it's not on the top of the menu of the press or cops.

What is of note is that Dr. Greer's press conference showed the
press is interested but the solid evidence can't be presented
without amnesty from prosecution for violating secrecy oaths.

If it ain't one thing it's another.


Best,

Greg
