Probably best to let Brad speak for himself on that. He is
clearly irritated that the Blue Book statistics were, shall we
say, creatively processed to diminish this parameter. I think
his complaint has merit. To the extent it can be manipulated in
this fashion, this parameter is indeed meaningless as a measure
of the 'legitimacy' of the UFO phenomenon.

I agree. I further agree that time and resources are being
wasted on cases of minimal value, per your earlier comment to
Brad.
