Redfern ends his blog post with the following:

"A 50th anniversary for MJ12? I don=92t know whether to laugh or cry..."

My advice that he should rejoice because it will mean subjects
for future books he will want to write.

BTW, Nick, where is the my free copy of the book you wrote about
the Other MIB.
