I had a formal debate with McGaha at Middle Tennessee State
University, Murfreesboro, TN, on Jan. 28, 2004, before a full
house live audience (avail able on video Are Flying Saucers
Real? - 2 hrs. for $15. including shipping fromme at POB 958,
Houlton, ME 04730-0958).

He used Power Point, I used slides. He was arrogant and
ignorant. He has his own observatory, was a USAF pilot, did as I
recall more than 1000 parachute jumps, has taught a few
astronomy courses at an Arizona Junior College.

He seemed less ill at ease than he was on the King show.

I love the JAL link with Jupiter as if the FAA and 747 radars
could pick up Jupiter. Note he didn't say how many years after
Rendelsham that he walked the site looking for radiation.

I doubt if many found him even as credible as Dr. Michael
Shermer on LK on July 13 or in the debate with me on C to C on
August 1.
