You made your offer directly to me, and I was sympathetic to
having you appear. Others weren't. I see the point you're making
now, and I can see how it's reasonable to you.

On the other hand, this conference isn't meant as the last word
in scientific discussion of abductions, and in fact isn't meant
to be a conference in the scientific sense of the word, as the
abduction conference at MIT was. It's a presentation of certain
views to the public, and can be as opinionated as it wants.

In any case, Jerry Clark will be making a presentation, and he's
far from a hard-core abduction believer. We can count on him to
summarize a good balance of views, both pro and con. In fact, as
the moderator of the conference, I'll insist on it.

If you'd like to formulate a question for me to ask the
participants in the final panel discussion, I'll be happy to
consider asking it. I'm also looking forward to reading your
