I just want to say one thing in defense of Budd Hopkins:

All I know is that Budd is a kind and caring man. I once asked
him to call a friend of mine who was traumatized by alien
nightmares, lights shining into her bedroom, etc, and he called
her.

I was most grateful, and so was she. She had company at the time
and couldn't talk, but she was thrilled and felt validated.

A cynic could always say, "Oh, Budd was looking for material for
a book to make more money." It could be true. But if you find a
doctor you like who really seems to care about you and his other
patients, do you discount his attitude as being merely
financially motivated? Is he really like some of the others with
a cold bedside manner? Certainly not. A "caring" doctor is
better than an uncaring one even if he charges you money to see
him (gasp).

Budd has to make a living like the rest of us, but my sense is
that he's a kind and caring man with a good heart.

I wish him well in his hour of need.
