C'mon, Peter.

We had many discussions while you were working on your book, and
in one of them I told you about Dave Jacobs's most striking
general claim, that details of abduction accounts fall into
chronological patterns. As he's said (I'm paraphrasing here, but
his words weren't too different), "When I hear A, I don't have
to say a word, and I know I'm going to hear B, C, and D."

I asked you if you were going to call Dave, and ask him to
document that. After the book was finished, you told me you
hadn't had time to do it. So when you say you don't know what
these details are, the first question has to be, "Why didn't you
