The San Francisco Chronicle


You would figure by now calling your fellow citizens "kooks"
near the beginning of your so-called objective outlook in a
major newspaper story would have gotten some editor's eye and a
less disingenuous word would be used.

How can you editorialize in a staff-writer story?

This is exactly what I mean about trusting the mainstream press
regarding UFOs.

Yes there are some things in ufology that aren't the norm but
calling people "kooks" from a professional perspective
undermines professionalism.

Within our own ranks some of us demean one another with such
snide terms revealing more about the inadequacies of the snide-
term-slinger than the intended target.

Looks like no matter which way one turns there are enemies
without and worse, within.
