You are right, Jerry, I don't know who provided the tributes.
Only that Kay describes them as from other personalities in the
business of UFO research and commentary.

If Kay wants to make these tributes public in a website, I get
to comment on that fact and nature of those tributes.

You get to comment on my comments. As my logic professor once
opined, different opinions make for interesting horse races. Let
the race continue, ad nauseam.
