Subject: Re: Sturrock Report

As Jerry comments, yes I am temporarily off-line and I am having
to keep up with UpDates via the 'Hundred Last Messages' service
on a borrowed computer, so my responses are not as fast or
frequent as I (if no one else) would like!

I'm sorry if I thought that Jerry et. al. welcomed the Sturrock
Report as an 'endorsement' of the ETH. However its findings were
welcomed with whoops of joy by Jerry and the ETHers and with the
clear implication that it was bad news for the PSH gang - "taken
it in the chops" in Mr Clark's elegant phrase.

It now seems, at least on UpDates, that everyone is agreed that
Sturrock does *not* promote the ETH, does *not* discredit the
PSH and quite rightly concludes that science, in the widest
sense, may be advanced by serious study of puzzling UFO reports.
We all appear to be in total agreement about this, so everyone
have a nice day!

BTW, I checked out the "hysterical" editorial about Sturrock in
New Scientist. Two paras tucked away at the end of the page. I
thought it was snide but basically accurate, and certainly not
hysterical.

Also BTW, still no response to Harney's attack on Klass's
dismissal of the
Travis Walton abduction. Come on you guys, give the chap a hand!
