I consider allegations like these too silly to be worth any
serious person's time. Allen did have a high security clearance,
but nothing in his behavior on any level betrayed any awareness
of UFO secrets; to the contrary, he was wont to complain about
the oafishness of the Blue Book personnel with whom he had to
deal.

In his later years he expressed growing frustration about what
he thought he might not have been told. All conspiracy theories
focused on Hynek, I've noticed, come from those who knew him
either not at all or very slightly.

>>In my opinion you're engaged in some pretty serious time-wasting.

>Well, I've wasted more time on sightings by Tombaugh and Menzel...

Any time spent on Menzel is time wasted by definition.

>(Not to mention ufology more generally!)

Then don't. I find that after all these years, I have a harder
and harder time making room for ufology amid my many other
intellectual interests. The world is an interesting place with
plenty of other fascinations. If I had concluded years ago that
there's nothing sufficiently unusual going on to warrant the
time, attention, and effort, I'd have abandoned ufology long
ago.
