As if they were the victims of a coercive telepath, people I respect want to give Dr. David Jacobs a by and treat Ms "Emma Woods" as an obsessive nut-ball or shrill harridan grasping for attention and smearing the good Doctor's name... and by extension the memory of the even more revered Budd Hopkins.
Well, fellow Feschino freaks! Just when you thought you had heard everything about the "Flatwoods Monster" incident, the authority on the case, one Frank Feschino, Jr. releases some never before heard, first-hand testimony of primary witness (the late) Kathleen May. Here's some stuff to put a decided wave in your short and curlies!
This site has been a wonderful resource for several years now, thanks to the efforts of Lesley Gunter, Alfred Lehmberg, Regan Lee ... any everyone who has read or commented here. As one of our commenters said just today, this site is a great historical repository of the turbulent journey we've all been on together.
As you may have heard, we have been asked to remove any mention of "UFO Magazine" from our work and our sites. The corporation that owns the trademark has decided -- without any discussion or give-and-take or work-arounds or anything like that -- that publishing digitally is not publishing at all, at least when it comes to UFO reporting.
We have no recourse or choice, therefore. This site will be renamed and perhaps archived or moth-balled, or whatever it is we're supposed to do to conform to the corporation's wishes. I will either change the logo, remove the logo, or ... actually, I don't know what I'm going to do, to tell you the truth.
I will start a new blog here on Squarespace as the new home of the New New Project that I will announce soon. Links will be here, there, and everywhere and I hope you'll join us as we continue our journey under a new name. Which I will announce soon, maybe even on Future Theater tonight at 7 pm EST.
I don't know what the next step for the corporation will be, so I don't know what our next step is going to be, but I am planning for the worst. If you are a subscriber, you have four options:
1. Write to the corporation:
5455 Centinela Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90066
2. Wait to see who buys the license to use the name and logo "UFO Magazine" and make sure they know you are a current subscriber, with issues left on your subscription.
3. Go to the Minions Faq and cut-and-paste the subscriber's form and email it to me. Let us know the name on the subscription and I will sign you up for the new magazine, which will be mostly -- but not all -- digital, and will double your existing issues.
4. It's around here somewhere -- there is a fourth option. I'll fill it in when I find it again.
Meanwhile, discuss below, as I know you will. I really really think things will be brighter and better and even more interesting as we expand our horizons from just-UFOs to much much more than UFOs.
