I had the good fortune of meeting Wendy two years ago in
Albuquerque. Few have dug as long or deep into UFO history as
Wendy. Her many years and thousands of hours devoted to
compiling and editing hundreds of hours of recorded UFO history
is a truly remarkable feat. I predict these recordings will
still be used by historians a hundred years from now.

So fear not, Wendy. Even if you wished you had done more, these
recordings, if nothing else, will serve as a lasting legacy that
you have left behind.

Nah, Wendy is more like the proverbial whore with the heart of
gold ;-), a generous, caring person. But she is also very
honest and thus doesn't suffer fools and phonies lightly. Hence
self-appallations like "Wicked Witch of Ufology", "Diva-Like
Bitch", and "CSICOPian slayer"
