Well, Jerry, what I gave up on was the simplistic approach to
Roswell taken by all the known Roswell researchers. The only
source material I found cited in their books was material from
other Roswell researchers.

On the contrary, I have an unpublished manuscript which cites
many documents not cited by Roswell researchers. I think I can
relate to Annie Jacobsen and the heat she is taking from ufo
investigators. It is like: "What? You didn't quote from my book,
so you don't know anything!" Please, Roswell orthodoxy is alive
and well with 'the community' ready to defend their anointed
spokespersons. They just plain bore me. Jacobsen presents a
totally new approach. Something that can be researched. Plus,
the fact that she has rankled the UFO community. I like that she
has shaken up 'the community'.
