It wasn't. This wasn't a MUFON conference or specifically a UFO
conference. It was held in the fall of 1983 and organized by Ray
Boeche. Through his legal threats and blusterings Klass
prevented a sequel and pronounced himself satisfied with that.

In fact, Klass was there at the 1988 Lincoln, Nebraska, MUFON
confab right up in the front row, flashing a tape recorder and
making pains to be sure speakers (such as the undersigned) saw
him taking photographs of them. I have a wonderful photo
somebody took of Klass taking a photo of me.

Quite amusing, really. Everybody took it as Klass' childish
notion of speaker intimidation, and many were the chuckles about

Ya gotta love the guy. I have the strange feeling that we'll
actually kind of miss him when he's no longer stalking among us.
And poor Mr. Brookesmith: whom, following that sad day, is he
going to have to parse sentences for?
