Kicking The Hornets' Nest
by Billy Cox

Dr. George Michael clearly had no idea what he was stepping into
last month when he submitted a favorable review of Leslie Kean's
UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On the
Record to eSkeptic, the online newsletter of the Skeptics
Society. Boy, was he in for an education.

"I would've hoped they would've been more open-minded instead of
going ad hominem and calling me clueless and stupid," said
Michael from Montgomery, Ala. That's where he teaches nuclear
counterproliferation and deterrence theory, at the Air War
College, as an associate professor. "I know they categorically
reject UFOs, I just didn't know how deep it went."

Michael, a relative newcomer to the UFO controversy, apparently
passed a Skeptical smell test last year without incident.
Intrigued by Stephen Hawking's warnings in 2010 that radio
signals might alert galactic conquistadors to the presence of
life on Earth, Michael revisited three classes of hypothetical
extraterrestrial civilizations proposed by Russian
astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev in the 1960s. His article
didn't mention UFOs. Skeptic Magazine published it in 2011.

But last week, the spit hit the fan.
