UFO UpDates List folk:

Jerry Black has a response to the comments by Richard Hall.
These are his words as I have transcribed by telephone this
evening -- Kenny


Mr. Hall;

I appreciate your comments and your remarks are so noted. I have
the utmost respect for you and your work in the UFO field.

In my earlier response, I said the money Ed Walters gave to
MUFON to support his Gulf Breeze investigation went from
"either/or" MUFON/FUFOR to Bruce Maccabee. In my statement, I
said "either/or." However, I take your word that The Fund for
UFO Research is not involved and did not receive money from Ed
Walters. The evidence is very clear that Bruce Maccabee received
the money directly from MUFON given to them by Ed Walters.

I can understand you having respect for a friend that you have
known for 40 years. However, the evidence is very clear. Mr.
Bruce Maccabee may have not have been totally honest when he
said that he did not know that Ed Walters had given money to
MUFON for the sole purpose of investigating the Gulf Breeze

If Vicky Lyons and Charles Flannagan both had this information,
it would be illogical to think Mr. Maccabee would not have known
this. The telephone call between Rex Salisberry and Ed Walters
affirms that the payment was made and certainly Maccabee should
have known.

Mr. Hall, by your own admission, you state you have problems
with the Gulf Breeze case, yet not the integrity of its primary
investigator. As hard as it may be sometimes, we must not let
good friendships stand in the way of being critical of poor,
one-sided investigations.  -- J.B.


Jerry Black states: "I apologize to the UFO Update List that I
am not always able to quickly respond 'on list' to questions,
but again, please call me at my telephone number, toll free, at
