Mr. Oberg,

Well, now you have some documentation. Perhaps you should do
your own digging before dismissing things. I'm surprised at you.
While I don't know what your research capabilities are, I can
imagine that you would have access to many resources to find the
data you need.

Mr. Filer was somewhat specific in repeating the quotation,
providing a year and the LA Times. Seems simple enough to check,
if you wanted to go directly to the source. But the UFO field
has some fantastic resources of its own. Perhaps you can inquire
of Barry Greenwood or one of his associaties to query his vast
collection of newsclippings the next time a question such as
this comes up.

I understand that the burden is upon the person making the
claim; however, as I said before this seemed a simple matter to
check (as quickly proven true by the number of responses to your
message) and it is something you should have done.
