You clearly _never_  intentioned  to let me or Barry see the
paper before it was sent to MUFON. The so-called co-author
couldn't even get a copy for review until a couple of days
before press, but you passed off the paper to Paul Kimball weeks

I happened to know about Kimball's site:


and an earlier mention by him of your friendship... and still he
supports you...

"I had an advance peek at the paper weeks before the Symposium
courtesy of Brad, and was going to provide some editorial input
(mostly re: spelling, grammar, and overall construction, which
it badly needed at that stage), but work and life got in the
way, and I never got a chance to send back my suggestions, which
Brad had asked for (putting the boots to any assertion that Brad
can't take constructive criticism)."

Obviously, Paul Kimball didn't have to deal with you over
suggestions as he didn't give any.

Obviously, you knew Barry wouldn't go along with your changes of
stripping out his information. Which I am sure was done before
Kimball got a copy. Who was to be the co-author anyway Kimball
or Greenwood?

If Kimball's suggestions were incorporated would Barry have been
advised of them?

Kimball plays down the money or AFOSI motivation as non-
important. Least we forget in a court of law and life in general
motivation carries a great deal of weight on passing judgment.

Obviously, you couldn't handle dealing with facts so you had to
huff and puff all sorts of legalese about being sued as a poor
excuse to strip out material and to create a fog to hide in.
Well the sun is coming out and the fog is starting to burn away.

At this point MJ-12 isn't in the sunlight it's Brad Sparks
behavior. When someone behaves this way I have to question
everything they say and do and their lack of character.

Obviously, you had no confidence in your own AFOSI theory since
you were afraid of the competition. Couldn't go head to head
instead you took undue advantage at another's expense. Then when
brought to task you and complain about abuse.

Of course the field of Ufology is littered with this type of
behavior so should I have expected better from Brad Sparks? Brad
has the ability to be an excellent researcher, unfortunately, he
has let his attitude, my way or the highway and only seeing what
he wants to see, take him across the line of acceptable

I truly hope you're redeemable... I won't hold my breath though.
