Eradicating the UFO Pestilence -- Part II

Holy Green Fireballs! 

I never expected the kind of response I've gotten to my letter to the MUFON head office asking them to un-invite Jaime Maussan from this September's UFO Symposium, and to banish anyone who stood with him on that stage in Mexico City last month. 

I guess it had never occurred to me that nobody has ever made such a request before. How can that be?? I feel a little like Oliver Twist asking the orphanage Headmaster for "More please?" at lunch time: kind of bewildered that such a simple request would cause such a ruckus...
"Please sir, could you tell Jaime Maussan to stay home?"

Well, I am happy to say that I have an update, or at least a partial one: MUFON Director Jan Harzan  called me today to talk about the issue. We played a little phone tag over the course of the day, but never connected. Alas, I will be traveling tomorrow, so I won't be able to talk with him until next Monday at the earliest. 

I will say that I was pleased with the friendly tone of Jan's voice messages, and I am looking forward to talking to him. However, I don't feel it's right to comment further until we've had a chance to talk. I will post an update right here as soon as there is anything new to report. Meanwhile, thanks for all the support!

Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this thought:

The other day an old friend of mine, who knows nothing about the UFO biz, was looking at the MUFON logo and asked, in complete innocence: "How do you pronounce this? 'MUFFIN'?"
