That's right, guy -- keep it personal.  I should have thought,
however, that you already have your hands full translating
Klass' sentences into consensus-reality sentiment.

In your dreams, buddy.  Hendry, who was a friend of mine and an
all around good guy, was not "perplexed" by the debunkers and
their activities in the slightest.  He saw right through them and
had nothing but contempt for them.  Go to the bibliography of The
UFO Handbook and try to find any references therein to Klass and
Menzel.  Their absence is not accidental.

The name was Wilbert, not Wilbur, and the last word on
this fascinating, complex, and exasperating man does not
belong to Christopher Allan.
