I don't think this has been futile at all. In fact, much has
already been accomplished. Dennis Stacy has been silenced, Rob
Irving is at least breaking stride while he attempt to wade
through them -- and actually admits to being intrigued.

Frankly, vague references to the literature did sound like a
copout to me. The ball has now been placed squarely in the court
of the skeptics.

And I would hope that any other ufologists who can think of
particularly strong cases will post them here.

Personally, I'd love a list of your ten best OEH cases.

Kind regards,
