He disproves nothing. Sheaffer's laughable and amateurish attempt at a 'solve' with Nickel on the Exeter Incident is a prime example of solve by decree rather than the use of any facts. What I've just read as a 'rebuttle' by Sheaffer to George Michael's piece is simply that - an attack rather than any refutation of fact. Looks like Shaeffer is bucking for the slot left empty by Phil Klass. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
