Sorry for the confusion.  I related two comments made by someone
into a single thought, and that appears to have been in error.
The thrust of my comment remains true (IMHO), but I certainly
wouldn't want to give an inaccurate sales figure for what many
have described as an excellent work. I will add that I've seen
Clark's "The UFO Book" at area bookstores and it is priced right.
For those who can't find it at their local bookstore, it is also
available through 'www.amazon.com' and 'www.books.com'.

There seems to be a call for the centralization of UFO data, and
I should have said that such a compilation would only be of
interest to a couple of hundred serious researchers, and not to
the public at large.  On the other hand, I think that it's
incumbant on researchers to provide a counterpoint to the tabloid
"trash" that seems to fill the cable channels (and air waves)
these days.
