Steve, Moseley, whom I knew well and with whom I corresponded up till the end, was not a skeptic by any definition. He thought UFOs to be some kind of extradimensional phenomenon, and he did not like skeptics, whom he regarded as bores and worse, all that much. He was something of an iconoclast (in equal parts astutely and obliviously, in my observation), but that is not the same thing as a skeptic. He was less interested in UFOs as such, however, than in the social world of persons concerned, intelligently or otherwise, with UFOs. His role in the UFO subculture cannot be captured in a single word. And if one has to use two, It was sui generis. I am still trying to process the news, however sadly expected, of Jim's death. I will have more to say on his life and career at some point. For now, I mourn the loss of a friend. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
