If UpDates were audio, in other words, you'd be repeating your
exact words _except louder_. Always an effective way to make a
point, I'm sure you believe.

To address one pointless strain in this thread:

As a human being Creighton, of course, was more than just a
crackpot obsessed with reading demonology into UFO reports. In
his long life, he did other things as well, and not all (or even
most) of them exhibited the dismaying traits he brought to his
ruminations on UFOs. So what? Unless we're cardboard cutouts,
all of us have lots of sides to us.

The point remains, however, that when he discussed UFOs,
Creighton - especially in his years as FSR editor - was more
often irrational than not.
