UFO Irony!

There's a chapter title in the book "The Real Area 51: Inside Wright-Patterson Air Force Base" (2013, New Page Books) that adds a heaping dose of irony to the the Roswell Slides clusterfuck (as if it needed any more).

"The Real Area 51" was written by Thomas Carey and Donald Schmitt, of course, so its contents have special relevance at the moment. The title of Chapter 15 is -- and I'm not making this up, folks --
"Dr. J. Allen Hynek: Dupe or Accomplice?"
Do you think maybe we start asking that of Carey, Schmitt and the rest of the Roswell Dream Teamers?

BONUS IRONY: Don't ever say this blog doesn't deliver. I have just noticed another huge irony on the pages of "The Real Area 51", this one on the dedication page. It reads:
"Dedicated to the fond memory of
Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was enough of a scientist to admit he was wrong"
Kind of blows your mind, doesn't it?

NOTE: I would include scans of these pages, but I only have a Kindle copy of the book. I will leave it to the expert photoanalysts to determine whether or not that's what the book really says...

Maybe they should have used one of these... It might have been more accurate.
