The Wingfield article should not have been needed to point to the lack of credibility in the claims that were made, and the 'Ozark UFO Conference' again shows its value to ufology in helping to promote what most would describe as a blatant hoax. Unfortunately, one can also look at the upcoming MUFON Symposium scheduled for this July and see that the goal has shifted from a pursuit of truth, to a pursuit of increased attendance and greater sales on the Vendor floor. For them it matters not that the public is interested because of the entertainment value. It certainly isn't the scientific analysis that was more prevalent in the past. Hollywood, meanwhile, is expanding beyond the standard 'alien' meme and it will be interesting to see if the genre evolves along the same lines in response over the next decade.
