James, Errol and all,

I've been away on some research the past month (ironically some
about Kenneth Arnold)  but did notice some messages and had to reply
as it is one of my favorite subjects.

I am a lucky person to live here in Seattle and spend as much
time as possible up at Mt. Rainier.  Greg Long is also living
here now and he has recently completed a new book on Kenneth
Arnold. For those who are not familiar, Greg was the last person
to interview Arnold before his death.

Just coincidentally, I was at Greg's house last Thursday and he
gave me the opportunity to read thru Ken's personal scrape books.
This provided me with an insight of not only who Kenneth Arnold
was but of the UFO activity that was so prevelent in the news at
that time.  I can't tell you what a thrill it was to be able to
do this. Greg and I talked about the original report and story.
The  description only changed slightly with the additional of the
9th craft which was different. I am sure in an exciting moment
when it happened, more precise details would come into play after
one had time to go over it.

He did become quite fascinated with the subject and saved many
news clippings of other incidents and sightings around the world
that were happening in the years that followed. Anyone who has
spent time at Mt. Rainier will know that it is a very interesting
mountain. The Native Americans who live in this area have many
tales and myths about our great volcano.

Of interest, a comment Arnold made to Greg before his death he

"It is my impression that everyone, no matter what part they play
in this existence that seems to go on into infinity, has a
special purpose or a special task or a special reason for being
what they are and for doing the things they do. I don't say that
we are placed here by a divine Providence to accomplish a great
mission. Nothing so egotistical. Perhaps it is purely a personal
reason: merely to add to our own experience, our mental growth,
our ability to become a functional part in a whole of society
which may be more vast than we dream".

You have to like this guy!!
