Neil, List All -

Just for fun, let's all go around again. First, there would be
no reason to send Johnson out to the base if there was no news
story. This simply defies logic.

Two, Johnson said that he wrote the news story because there was
no one else to write it. He claimed that seven or eight times
over two interviews until I told him that his new claims made no
sense based on last paragraph of the news story... then suddenly
he didn't know who wrote it.

Three, if Johnson took the pictures and was out in Ramey's
office alone, why didn't he make notes for the news story even
if he didn't write it. You've got a reporter in place and then
he doesn't do basic journalism. This simply defies logic...
though it does mean you can now claim that Johnson photographed
some of the real debris.

What this really boils down to is Johnson making multiple
claims. It boils down to a news story in the newspaper that said
plainly that Ramey told him it was a balloon. It boils down to a
time-line that is not based on sun angles and speculation about
daylight savings time or standard time, but on documented fact.

It is clear that Johnson went out there. He took the six
photographs he claimed. He took notes about what Ramey said and
he returned to the newspaper and developed his film and wrote
his story. He knew when he went out that it had to do with
flying saucers and he was told immediately that it had been a
weather balloon.
