The question at hand, it seems, is how to get these solid cases
to the forefront of all future discussions, whether on the
Internet, UFO documentaries, or books.

The way I'd do that if I were a ufologist would be to make up a
tidy one-sheet summary of the best cases of the type referenced

I would hope every ufologist would even carry a photo-reduced
laminated version at all times, because in many surprise
discussions, it's easy to "go blank" and forget your best
material, no matter what your field.

I would hope every ufologist would have the list of solid cases
posted beside every PC and telephone.

I would hope every reply to disparaging article or column
fronting the 'fluff' cases would include a concise listing of
those same cases. No exceptions.

I would hope every ufologist would hand every documentary
producer asking about an appearance a copy of that fact sheet,
and insist on an agreement that those _specific_ cases are to be
mentioned as a condition of cooperation.

Ditto talk show hosts, and newspaper reporters, columnists, and

I would hope every serious UFO web site would prominently post
that list of solid cases, if not as part of the front page,
linked from the front page at the "top tab" level.

Printing the list out, and making it available in laminated or
quality paper form at UFO events would be an excellent way to
increase coverage of the information.

This would for sure reduce some opportunities, but I think
Brad's point is so critically important that it should be
carried out with military exactness. It seems to me, a
non-ufologist, like about the only way to move the public
education campaign to a higher level, and start making real
progress in beating back the naysayers and debunkers.

It is do-able, and cheap to do, and I hope it will be done soon.

I am sick to my stomach, having reached age 65, and still not
knowing anything more about the substance of UFOs than I did at
age 12. Brad Sparks has pointed the way in this _watershed_
email, I feel.
