From: Alfred Lehmberg <Lehmberg@snowhill.com> Date: Sat, 03 Apr 1999 07:14:40 -0600 Fwd Date: Sat, 03 Apr 1999 09:42:54 -0500 Subject: Re: Alfred's Odd Ode #297 Apology to MW #297 (For April 3, 1999) A moment to celebrate Jesse Marcel. A HERO by measure (!) despite what Todd tells! A patriot born at the start of a century, he burns with significance -- proudly exemplary. In at the _start_ of the *strangest* coincidence (the lost message traffic, the tales -- bizarre incidence), he _followed_ the orders that made him a fool, and he _lived_ their betrayal which made him a tool. Nailed to crosses of National Security, plagued by an excess of brass insecurity, he came to his end with these words on his lips -- "I'm knowing the difference twixt balloons and spaceships." Jesse was _special_, and held a position of critical importance he _earned_ with precision. Efficient, and smart (of _unquestionable_ honor (!)), it was a _brave_ man Todd's trashed and dishonored! Concerning those officers (who made the decisions) that put Jesse *in* to his _well watched_ positions -- these were no bureaucrats (obsessed with an image); these were hard warriors who'd just won their scrimmage with Nippon and Hitler -- stood _tall_ at the finish! And they had _no_ problems with Jesse -- unblemished. Survived by a son that he raised up just _fine_ (the son is a doctor, but pay it no mind), suffice it to say that the son bears with tact . . . what one Jesse Marcel said he _did_ -- was a FACT! The spaceship was real, and was held in his hands! No trick of mere paper, and foiled rubber bands! No cellophane tape, or carnival symbol explained his excitement (I'm _sure_ he still trembles). No trick of the light, or slight of dad's hand would make him face ridicule the like of that planned by the Todd, his associates, and the short sighted planners who _shrink_ from anomaly -- its whistles and banners! _Something_ occurred on that dark, stormy night! The flashes of lightening lit up a new sight of a craft from the stars that had made its crash landing, and left in a scar (that was huge and demanding) a trail of pieces that point to _tomorrow_. Tomorrow is _here_, Todd! Give it up, can you follow? Jesse was honored by _all_ his superiors; NOTHING about him was noted inferior! He was involved with those bombs using *fission*? The _first_ of their _kind_ was the point of his *mission*? You think they weren't sure of his words and his deeds? You think him not CHECKED to a parse and a squeeze ? He was the actual _head_ of intelligence! He was the boss! Where _comes_ your intransigence?! Sooner or later the truth will come out, that Jesse had honor, and Todd was a trout. Hooking his fish on a spurious line, Todd uses straw men (of a scurrilous kind) to harm and discredit a man who had _honor_ -- exceeding detractors too shallow to matter! What of Todd then? Will he print a retraction? Or, will he just fade to predicted inaction? Will he make good with dear Jesse's survivors, or will he just pick a new target to fire? I would admit to a wrong or an error because I'm concerned and I want to play fairer! I would believe the Todd's white bread convenience if he was forthcoming or tolerant -- lenient. That Jesse's a liar for *dust* in old records _belies_ good researching; it's _narrow_ perspective. He was SELECTED for SERIOUS toil; his records were accessed, and _strained_ -- hell, par boiled! He was the subject of massive research! They chopped and they sliced his whole _life_ apart, Burt! If he was, then, all that the Todd has proclaimed (?) then who were the FOOLS that, _then_, CLEARED his good name? Lehmberg@snowhill.com I want it all. Mr. Todd makes convenient assumptions. If his assumptions are flawed his arguments are flawed. The same goes, of course, for _me_ his *honored* opposition. Mr. Todd may _assume_ the veracity of records that have a strong potential for being flawed on many levels. Todd's honored opposition may _assume_ the veracity of records that have a strong potential for being flawed on many levels . . . I _see_ how this works. The vagaries don't escape me. But blithely, and with a degree of uncalled for rancor, Todd makes additional assumptions I would be cautious of, and am (in fact <g>) scandalized by! Todd _assumes_ a near flawless integrity of official government records from a government clearly riddled with lack of critical oversight, and wasting millions of dollars every day to kickback, scandal, or inefficiency. He _assumes_ a lack of integrity, an abundance of gullibility, and the questionable mental health of anyone who believes UFO's might be piloted by an *outside* intelligence. He _assumes_ interpretations of facts in a cold harsh light of black or white that castes more shadows than he is willing to admit, for it allows not the tinniest shade of ubiquitous gray. One _has_ to allow gray. Everything is gray. Pure black and white is a myth, a fantasy -- a shadow on the walls of Plato's cave. A sensible person acknowledges and appreciates gray, has a gray _basket_ that is expansive, open minded, organized, objective, constructive, comprehensive, flexible, acceptable, specific, and thoughtful. Mr. Todd, is none of these things. This is the way our Mr. Todd works; this is the *wonder* that is his investigative acumen: Let's say I told you that I had more than 40 air-medals, earned as a helicopter pilot in Viet Nam in 1970. Air medals were awarded -- (rules _changed_ slightly between units for _all_ the procedures _clearly_ outlined in some regulation somewhere that our _intrepid_ Mr. Todd finds a copy of ), for every 5 hours of combat flying, or every 25 hours of flying in direct combat support (my recollection). My official records of the time indicate only _one_ air medal was ever awarded. Forgetting that my hours flown in a combat zone are documented to be 1086 (so by definition the hours flown in a combat unit _are_ combat or direct combat support), flying _only_ in direct combat support would net 43 air medals. *Official Records*; however, indicate only _one_. Ah-ha, Mr. Todd triumphantly concludes! Alfred Lehmberg is a _craven_ liar, not to be trusted, and beneath the concern, consideration, and contempt of all that behold him, or consider his speculations! Todd's unjustified and narrowly conceived character assassination begins in earnest, and is unrelenting. Forget that I _earned_ over 40 air-medals -- Todd's myopic and self serving narrowness has scourged another otherwise spotless reputation. Forget, too, that Major Jesse Marcel was a man _handpicked_ from hundreds of qualified individuals for his courage, intelligence, and unblemished record to do a job of _critical_ importance in the interests of the HIGHEST levels of a (perhaps even <g>) justifiable National Security! Forget! Robert Todd has. This is _exactly_ what Todd does to Jesse Marcel! He ignores, completely, the fact that Marcel's integrity, character, and reliability must have been appreciated quite highly at the TIME as _the_ top kick intelligence officer for the worlds _only_ aviation group capable of delivering the atomic bomb! Don't you think it likely that Mr. Todd is missing the point here a little bit? Or, perhaps, getting it _completely_, he runs furtively in the other direction trying, desperately, to avoid the baying of his anomalous hounds? I think it's the latter.
