Hello Bruce and others:

I stayed out of this fray because I had nothing factual,
anything of substance to contribute to the matter.

All I can say is that every impression I have of Bruce Maccabee
(however he mis-spells it) is one of complete honesty.

I think it is a mistake to submit to any tests set up by anyone
who presents himself the say Black does.

Like Jerry Clark and others, I have real doubts about the Gulf
Breeze series, and of course those are entirely beside the

The point is (as I see it) that we have Mr. Black crawling out
of the woodwork, almost on schedule, with Bruce M [however he
spells it] as the siiiiingle target.

One might ask what else Jerry Black has done for Ufology, but
that's too easy, a cheap shot. After researching UFOs for almost
20 years now, the _only_ reference I have for Jerry Black is/are
his complaints about Bruce Mackabee

Other than Gulf Breeze, where honest opinions differ, my worst
complaint about BM is that his name is too easy to spell rong.
My impressions of Mr. Black are decidedly sorrier.

Best wishes

PS: I can still spell a certain Polish name, a high-school chum
named Tom Walczykowski. There is a sort of poetry to Polish
names, None of them rhyme with Stalin or Hitler.

If your name is Tom Walczykowski, please write
offlist. -LH
