As those new to the genre are attracted to the mystery, they
become a new group of 'rubes' to bring into the Carnival tents
of those who would promote their own narrow viewpoint, or seek
to make quick profit. The Wingfield article should not have
been needed to point to the lack of credibility in the claims
that were made, and the 'Ozark UFO Conference' again shows its
value to ufology in helping to promote what most would describe
as a blatant hoax.

Unfortunately, one can also look at the upcoming MUFON Symposium
scheduled for this July and see that the goal has shifted from a
pursuit of truth, to a pursuit of increased attendance and
greater sales on the Vendor floor. For them it matters not that
the public is interested because of the entertainment value. It
certainly isn't the scientific analysis that was more prevalent
in the past.

Hollywood, meanwhile, is expanding beyond the standard 'alien'
meme and it will be interesting to see if the genre evolves
along the same lines in response over the next decade.
