Leave it up to a Clark to get a party started right. Yes I'm a
member of the Clark family Clan too. Came over not too long
after the Mayflower I'm told. Long family line of Sheriffin'
too.

I take it your comments as the result of too many frustrating
years in ufology. It can have an affect on a guy after a while.
Gets some folks all cynical and curmudgeonly like Ol' Uncle Joe
from the classic Petticoat Junction tv show.

The wild theories and speculations regarding ufology make it
that unique field of study because it so fires up the
imagination and peppers our culture with new books, videos, art,
music and discussion.

One man's theory may well be another man's musings but its our
birthright in this country to do so. Believe it or not there are
some pretty wild theories held by the majority of Americans as
well as the majority of peoples on this planet that there is
something or someone called God. You can't see him, he has no
driver's license and no tv talk show but by cracky, there are
100s of millions of people present as well as past who'll swear
on a stack of Bibles that he's spoken to them, protected them
from harm, healed their illnesses and helped them find those
rare Bill Monroe bluegrass albums at the Sunday flea market.

Ufology is more than just a science. I do agree we should have
more discipline but it's difficult when the rest of the
scientific community, the mainstream press, our representatives
are too cowardly to confront the issue. We're left up to doing
it ourselves and even with the often circus attitude and
shenanigans the scientific research that has been done often on
shoestring budgets is admirable.

No, we can't walk into a disco and impress the hotties by saying
"I'm a ufologist!" because none of us are driving Lexuses and
the media's portrayal of ufologists doesn't include James Bond
like cool. That says to me if you're in it, you care. Ufologists
and the witnesses and whistleblowers and victims need our
support not our chastisement, that's what the enemy uses.


Best,

Greg
