UFOs: Is There A There There? - Binnall of America

My latest column for Tim Binnall's site:

UFOs: Is There A There There? - Binnall of America: Not news, that there’s no news, no there there, when it comes to UFOs. Every few months or so, UFO Land pronounces in various ways and expressions of despair, that it is the end of UFOs. We don’t care, the public doesn’t care, the main stream media doesn’t care, and if even with all of that did care, it wouldn’t matter, because — in this loop of indulgent hand wringing chicken little smug self-righteous prophetic know it all statements — there is nothing new, nothing revealed, nothing disclosed. So there. Nothing to UFOs, it’s a waste of time, move on, do something useful with your lives, and stop researching the obviously fruitless realm of aliens and UFOs.

I call a loud, vibrant, vivid, raucous and disruptive bullshit on that. For those of us who’ve had multiple sightings, missing time, encounters with some kind of other, and all the hassles, weirdness, exclusions, and misunderstandings of such events, dismissing the exploration of UFOs as some kind of sad wasteland of the loser crowd is only arrogance, combined with ignorance. The worst kind of stuffed shirt Gringch from Smugville.

It's always been my contention that a person is attentive to UFOs and their ancillaries because, given seven categories of evidentiary pathway, inattention seems unintelligent, unprogressive, and unbrave. Pompous slanderer Rich Reynolds is the poster child for the effulgent twat pontificating the death of UFOs, but seriously... when has Rich Reynolds been right about anything at all?
