Hi Dick,

I would be happy to do something on this theme for your Journal
of UFO History. Thanks for the copy of the latest with your
dialogue with me. The history of our subject, in all its
manifestations, is a fascinating and worthy topic.

My main point of my article can be best seen in its conclusion:
"Ufologists defiled? They were like so many other people with
diverse interests simply travelling through the distorted lens
of a "sub rosa" perspective, defiled by the misplaced paranoia
of the times." The reality or otherwise of UFOs was seldom a key
factor driving the monitoring of ufologists by intelligence
groups. Sure there are situations that suggest the contrary
view, but they seem outweighed by the negative view. While some
ufologists clearly had extreme or bizarre views, many more,
perhaps most, "were basically good people from a broad range of
backgrounds, united in a fascination for the UFO/flying saucer
mystery."


Regards,

Bill
