At the recent 21st annual 2012 International UFO Congress near Scottsdale, Ariz., there was certainly some of that purchase-an- ET-trinket mentality. But during my visit, I observed something else more telling: not everyone present was a UFO fanatic. Under the well tuned guiding arm of Open Minds Production, the IUFOC was truly an international event as nearly 2000 folks from around the world attended the six-day festivities. I've been to other UFO conventions that catered to the out-of- this-world element, but was impressed with several aspects of this event. Skepticism was welcome here. There was arch skeptic Robert Sheaffer's daily critical observations as he wandered in and out of the main speakers and vendors rooms. In my own presentation, I urged the audience not to believe every UFO item they hear about on the news, in magazines and, especially, online. [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
