Kathy, All -

Does Thomas mention Crisman's gunfight with the Deros of Shaver
mystery fame? Does he note that Crisman sent a letter to Ray
Palmer in 1946 claiming inside knowledge of the Deros?

Does he note that Haldor Dahl, who owned the North Queen, the
vessel that he thought of as the salvage ship didn't belong to
Harold Dahl, and that Thomas thought it was a typographical
error? He didn't bother to find out if there was a Haldor Dahl
(who, BTW, was one of the owners of Tacoma Boat Building Company
which had originally built the boat for the Navy during the war
and bought it back when the war ended.

Does he mention that Crisman claimed to have been awarded the
Distinguished Service Cross but that his name does not appear in
any of the databases which list the names of all those who have
been awarded it?

Does he mention that Dahl's son, who was supposedly injured when
the UFO began spewing slag denies the event happened and that no
one, except Ray Palmer, ever claimed to have seen the hospital

I bring all this up simply because it points to the truth of the
Maury Island hoax... and yes, I now expect to have scorn heaped
upon me for having the audacity of suggesting that this admitted
hoax was, in fact, a hoax.
