Carol, I think that you miss an important point that Jerry Clark, to the contrary, has well seen. It is a question of decency. You are talking about a man who has done a great amount of ground breaking research on abductions. It was, and still is, a difficult and risky task, requiring a lot of intelligence and courage among other things, and where one may be mistaken. His books are among the best I have read in ufology. BTW, the book you wrote with him is an interesting one, too. On the other hand, he has made mistakes, apparently. Even a big one with Mortellaro. You have chosen to publish a long text dealing only with that later part of his work, in which you find everything wrong. It so happens that you have been his wife during ten years and that you have decided to put in question the man and his work after a painful separation (painful to him too, as he tells briefly in his book), at a time when he is gravely ill. Even those who don't know Budd Hopkins cannot fail to notice that. Accusations of sexism are out of place here. In my opinion, your attitude raises a problem of decency, and Jerry Clark is quite right to say so. And never mind if some people don't agree. Gildas Bourdais Listen to 'Strange Days...
