Fellow Listers,

Here is a copy of the letter I sent to the author of the afore
mentioned article:


Dear Mr. Rank,

Thank you for your article about the life of Dr. Roy Craig and
his unfortunate passing.

In regards to the comments made by "Hal Mansfield," I'd like to
point out a few errors about UFOs that he made: For one, the
"existence" of UFOs or "Unidentified Flying Objects" has not
been in question "officially" for over six decades. The term was
created by the Air Force in the early 1950's. To use the noun
"believers" in association with UFOs is not rational. It would
be the same as saying, "believers in the Empire State Building,"
neither makes any sense.

Furthermore, one might argue that Dr. Craig "gained notoriety"
by the "subject matter" of the "Condon Report" opposed to his
position on it.

Finally, the so-called  "Condon Report," is filled with errors,
and in some instances is quite ludicrous. Moreover, there is
ample evidence that Edward Condon had a predisposed ideology in
regards to the UFO phenomenon, and was more interested in
maintaining the "status quo" then providing "unbiased scientific
methodology" to the study of said phenomenon.


Respectfully,

Frank Warren
