From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 03 Nov 1997 08:46:31 -0500 Fwd Date: Mon, 03 Nov 1997 08:46:31 -0500 Subject: UFO Author Timothy Good Speaks in Toronto Author Timothy Good was in Toronto last Tuesday night, speaking at RCMI (The Royal Canadian Military Institute) a club for current and retired officers from all branches of the armed services. The organising Captain, whose guests we were, was assured by other board members that "no one was interested in listening to _that_ stuff". The $39.00 a head dinner & talk tickets sold out in three weeks. Sue and I took our seats, tightly packed, with 138 other blazers and suits in a handsomely panelled dining room at the club, ate our silver-service dinner and awaited Good's talk. He nailed his audience. In the first moments he hooked them with slides of mostly military documents obtained under various international 'Freedom of Information Acts', many heavily blanked-out, reports by military and civil pilots, anecdotes of his conversations with many high-ranking officers working with governments worldwide and a dry, wry sense of humour. Good knows his stuff. He delivered information succinctly - classic 'sound-bite' style. His audience was intensely focused and deeply interested. The half-hour talk had the room buzzing at its conclusion. A too brief question period elicited intelligent questions, with only one 'little green men' yuk. Later, in the bar, having skirted around one another for over an hour, we finally met. And talked about Oechsler and Carp (both of which Good had heavily covered in his writings) and which I, along with other members of MUFON Ontario, had spent many months investigating. It transpired that I had been pointed out to him before dinner and virtually his first words were "You know I was one of the recipients of 'The Guardian Documents and Video?". I asked him what he thought of the 'craft' on the tape. He admitted that he wasn't sure about what it depicted. "And the documents?", I asked. He snorted. "So, how can the documents be bogus and the accompanying video be 'real'?" At that point we were distracted by a couple joining us. When we picked up again, Good was curious about the two other 'witnesses' to the 'landing' - a doctor (who wasn't available during our investigation, and the, to use Oechsler's words, "Canadian Government official" Susan ('Sarah Janille') Gill. I pointed out that Gill had said a) that it had been raining the night of the landing (it was actually raining the night before) and that she could have seen nothing from her property because of the extremely tall spruce trees blocking her view. See 'Carp' at the UFO Mind site at: http://www.ufomind.com/ufo/place/ca/on/carp/ Good feels that he was used by Oechsler. We agreed that Oechsler was a champion BS-artist, out to line his pockets who conned many. He also feels, that both Bobby Rae Inman and Thomas Stafford were truthful. Inman, Good said, knew that he and Oechsler were refering to UFOs during a taped conversation which Good described in Chapter 10 - Cosmic Journey of 'Alien Liason'. ebk "No matter what or how good the story is, 50% of the people will believe you, 50% won't. All you have to care about is the 50% that will".-- Bob Oechsler, Carp, Ontario, May 10, 1992.
