You have got to be kidding. How can anyone realistically look at
the hokey Ed Walters pictures, knowing the history of Ed
Walters' photo trickery, the Hyzer photo analysis which shoots
down this case as doube-exposing frauds and all the reported
'money issues' from the beginning... how could any rational
observer not think that this current remark about the photos
having more credibility than contrary information refuting this
case is a zany comment?

I am to be faulted for having no more tolerance for this tired
issue. Jerry Black is right when he says this case is an
embarrassment to the UFO subject. This Ed Walters case is a sham
and I think most of the people on this List know it. It is my
concern that the chief promoter, Dr. Bruce Maccabee, knows full
well this case is a sham in spite of his defense of the case,
and he has promoted and played off of this hoax for many years
now, to his benefit. I also have a deep suspicion that many
folks on this List may be tuned in to that concern, but heavens
forbid if something like that is raised in discussion. Why,
you'd be accused of a negative attack or attempting to "impute
dishonesty." Give me a break. This whole Gulf Breeze case is a
sleaze-pit of hocus-pocus. To avoid discussion because it might
'impute dishonesty' reeks of ulterior motivations, folks, and is
not what true inquiry is all about.

Dr. Maccabee has responded to things on this List before, mostly
trying to resort to an attempted technical discussion with
fogged non-specifics, and I understand why he wants the issue to
be dropped and to "let's move on, please." I would want to get
away from all that too if I were in those shoes.

Sorry to be blowing my steam here, Robert, I don't mean to be
taking it out on you but I am discouraged with this thing called
Ufology right now, disgusted with the sorry caliber of
space-nuts drawn to this subject and the snake-oil salesmen who
'rule the roost' as elder statesmen in this field. Darn it all
I'm burnt out on this whole thing and just don't know where to
go from here.
