Hello Al, hi All,

A buddy sent me an "update" on the Ford case that I wanted to
share with all of you. As I haven't asked permission to reprint
a 'private' communique I am hiding any details that may reveal
the identity of the person that sent it. The important/pertinent
details are all there though.


The news is that he has been recently transferred to a mental
hospital. And, of course, there are some serious charges against
him.  I work here in a (deleted) as a (deleted) and worked many
of my past (deleted) years with "penal code" patients.  Some of
those patients have not gone to trial yet because they are
incompetent to understand the charges against them and unable to
cooperate with their defense (and the others are not guilty by
reason of insanity).  So there probably is no conspiracy against
Mr. Ford --just that apparently he's not doing too well
emotionally and mentally.

Lets hope he gets well enough to defend himself at trial.



My response:

Hi (deleted),

Cheeses, Mary, and Joseph, let's hope they aren't basing the
diagnosis of incompetence/insanity on his belief in UFOs! Then it
becomes a serious issue (and a very real threat) for us all.

Thanx for the note. ;-)


If this is true, that John Ford has been institutionalized
because of his belief in UFOs, then we all have _a lot_ to think
about. I don't know about you guys (and I don't make a whole lot
of money) but I'm going to send in a few bucks to this guys
defense fund and maybe even send John a little note of support if
I can find out which 'laughing academy' he is being detained in.
After three years of the kind of medication that they usually
make those poor bastards take he may not even be the same person
anymore. That, my brothers and sisters is tantamount to punishing
a person without due process or a jury conviction.

Like I said in my first post,

"Innocent until proven guilty,"  and . . .

"there but for the Grace of God go you or I!"
