Good for you Nick!

Glad to see you expanding and being aware of the benefits that
notoriety can bring.

It ain't no sin to generate capital and in these times where
money is tough to get the opportunities that abound because of
your work should bring compensation.

I've seen too many Ufologists waste away from lack of funding.
Sacrificing much and ending up in dire straits.

Ufology is not yet a registered science so the rules regarding
conduct can be debateable.

Bottom line is what you do for your benefit is your business.
Selling books, doing the lecture circuit, all fine because
research costs money.
