His outright claims of who is and isn't worthy and what and who we should be reading is tiring. He simpers at the feet of those who seek only to raise barriers and do little to actually investigate this phenomenon. Taylor claims this is a MUST read as if he has any business telling the serious community of investigators what is a MUST read. He hasn't got the shoes for it. Roswell notwithstanding as to its veracity; the fact is that Printy spent a couple pages on Mogul when Mogul has been proven not to have been launched or in the vicinity that day. Despite what the witnesses claimed of the wreckage Printy and those before him still claim that a collection of weather balloons, tinfoil and Sitka Spruce confounded base personnel at Roswell. But the myth is worth fostering if only to advance the likes of Printy and Taylor. Taylor's last paragraph is typical of his approach. He pretends to be a serious researcher when in fact he does little himself and is angered when others do not do his work for him. He prefers to hang on the coattails of the likes of Printy. Printy, BTW, must only have a half dozen supporters out there who could readily be named but he puts out his e-mag upon which he does a great deal of work. It has to be a labour of love for him and his admission to a clique that has some agenda that is unclear. It certainly is not a publication that will convince those who have been investigating these same cases for years. Printy always falls short on proving his suppositions except on cases most of us could care less about. Most researchers are more than capable of tossing out the nonsensical cases or even the mundane cases with no detail worthy of inspection. Printy's intention of course is to raise doubts while failing to reveal that his point has been gone over many times before and makes it look like his thinking is a fresh approach. Taylor on the other hand is mired in some need to control what we should be thinking, who we should believe and what cases should be excluded from the record; never BTW what cases should be retained and examined. Not once have I seen the latter position from Taylor. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
