Kay Wilson has the right to run her website exactly as she
chooses and to honor a friend and colleague in any manner she
cares to. What business is it of yours?

And how do you know that those who wrote tributes to him knew
him only "superficially"? That certainly doesn't characterize my
long association and my many conversations with Budd on many
topics of mutual interest. Maybe you should stay out of the
mind-reading business.

So you could say I am proud not to be with John ("Sick-bag")
Rimmer. Lots of people would feel the same, I'm sure. Those who
have known Budd Hopkins, a gravely ill man, need a forum in
which to express their deep fondness. Why one should have to be
an abductee to feel that is beyond me.
