Let us all hope Karl recovers sufficiently to be able to
continue contributing as much to ufology as he has done in the
past. I agree his Roswell book is the best of the bunch.

For the benefit of British Listers, perhaps I should add that
Lou Gehrig (not Cehrig) was a professional baseballplayer who
died of the affliction in 1941.

The disease is known in the UK as motor neurone disease.
