I won't bore the readers with the rest of this rant nor will I
waste my time responding to such junk. Mr. Black clearly has an
axe to grind and is apparently disturbed that the world isn't
beating a path to his door. Mr. Black has grossly misrpresented
both the scientific method and my views, statements and
activities. My book is TOP SECRETY/MAJIC not Top Secret
Majestic. My focus was on content of the MJ-12 documents not on
typography so modern computers don't make it any easier. I speak
of evidence not proof. Kevin Randle and I certainly disagree
about a number of details about Roswell. But he has done a great
deal of investigation rather than Blackian proclamation. Kevin
and I certainly agree that a crashed saucer and alien bodies
were recovered in New Mexico in July 1947.

Len Stringfield was a collector of stories not a thorough
investigator of them. I asked him to follow up on the Pappy
Henderson story or have her call me collect so that I could seek
confirmatory witnesses. I found her, fortunately at Unsolved
Mysteries' expense. She wanted to appear on the program though
Len tried to dissuade her. I certainly didn't demand his files.
I did ask what would happen to them

I recently located Charlette Mann who had written him about Her
grandfather's experience in Missouri in 1941. She was quite
dismayed that Len had done nothing to follow up. Mrs.
Stringfield refused to check the files. I agreed not to spread
Charlette's  address. Len Didn't seem to understand that both
Sappho and Charlette were interested in getting independent
verification of their spouse's or grandfather's story.

One of the major objectives of people like Mr. Black and Philip
Klass is to waste the  time of ppeople such as Dr. Maccabee and
myself responding to their rants. Sorry. I have much better
things to do.
