Your answer amazes me again. Of course you talked about Budd
Hopkins and you did all you could to destroy is crediblity. You
even made a pejorative remark about his artistic career!

The fact that I felt the need to react to that does not mean
that I don't care about the mistakes he may have made.

This is another unfair, unfounded, accusation on your part.

AS my friend A.J. Gevaerd just said, I saw you too, in San
Marino in 1998, having obviously a very good time with Budd. And
I don't like the way you talk about him now.

This is my last comment, I hope.
