My Dear Dennis:

Excuse me, but after the appearance of my piece on John Ford in
the MUFON Journal, you printed a piece of writing by someone with
a _fake_ name ("Harry Hepcat"), in which the writer said he hoped
John Ford was gang raped in prison.

Far from offering me, the head of John Ford's Defense Committee,
the opportunity to respond in the same issue, you _refused_ to
allow me _any_ opportunity to respond at all!  I had to go over
your head to Walt Andrus and some 4 months later I was allowed a
modest 3 paragraphs of space in which, if I do say so, I rather
effectively and with dignity rebutted Mr. "Hepcat's" full page of
spleen.

I can see, though, why you liked Mr. "Hepcat's" article, Dennis.
Both you and he could vie for "intemperate of the year" honors in
anybody's book.
