High Strangeness: UFO Cesspool

UFO Cesspool

Once again, I am pretty discouraged with the state of UFOlogy. Just when you think the whole sorry mess, with all its feuding and lying and name-calling and narcissism, can't possibly get any worse, it does. And even though the unrelenting unpleasantness of this field of endeavour will someday make fantastic material for a book, it is something to be ashamed of.

I think it's pretty clear to anyone paying attention that this hopeless "Roswell slides" fiasco is now dragging the entire field of UFO research down the drain with it. Need proof? Now we've actually got people calling the police on each other over the slides...

Do you laugh or do you cry?

The film that started it all.
My mind was made up about the slides a few weeks ago, when the Curator of Technology at the Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film said that it is impossible to tell when Kodachrome film was manufactured, exposed or developed. I also happen to have personal connections to the photography expert who has looked at the slides and who appears briefly in the silly "Kodachrome" trailer, and if I ever have occasion to have a conversation with him about what he saw when he looked at the slides, I'll be sure to share it.

Or not, because one blog has recently revealed what he saw, and it wasn't much...

You can bet that this crap will continue to suck all the air out of the room for the next few months, and if history is any guide, even when the whole thing implodes on them on May 5, the promoters of the slides will continue to be given a seat at the table, because... I'm not sure, exactly. Can anyone help me with this?
