Right on Martin. Morrison and James McGaha would make a good
pair operationg under the basic rules of debunkdom. Don't bother
me with the facts; what the public doesn't know, I won't tell
them; do one's research by proclamation, and if one can't attack
the data, attack the people.

Why bother with the Astronomer sightings reported by
Hynek, McDonald, Sturrock, Gert Herb etc.,?

He also seems to know nothing about national security.

Best I can tell he went from getting his PhD at Harvard to Mauna
Loa observatory to his NASA Astrobiology post.
