Hi, Josh,

Sadly true. Cooper was the scariest man I've ever encountered in
my long years in this field, representing the sickest end of the
anti- gummint paranoia which so afflicted American politics over
the past two decades, and which now, happily, is receding.

When I pointed out in an article that some of Cooper's UFO
conspiracy theories had their roots in anti-Semitic literature,
he took to threatening me from various public forums. His
followers were frightening, too. Ten years ago, while lecturing
in Sydney, Australia, on the Dark Side fantasies for which
Cooper was largely responsible, I had my speech interrupted by
an enraged audience member who started shouting at me. It was
his view, as I understood it, that I was a CIA member; after
all, only a CIA member would charge that Cooper's stuff was 100%

I'm sorry that when he left this world, Cooper may have taken a
deputy sheriff with him. I hope the man recovers and is able to
resume his life without ever meeting a Cooper equivalent again.
Cooper, a true sociopath, did damage to just about anybody who
crossed his path. He will not be missed.
