The usual disgusting UFO ass-kissing

Kevin Randle is running, at his blog, a Jerry Clark review of Scott Ramsey's book about the so-called Aztec incident (made famous or infamous by Frank Scully's 1950 book, Behind the Flying Saucers).

The comments have been generally supportive of Mr. Clark's deprecating review.

But this sycophantic comment sums up what makes UFOs and its supporters a laughing stock among normal people:

"David Halperin said...A typically brilliant (and brilliantly written) piece, by one of our most brilliant UFOlogists."

No exegesis by Mr. Halperin -- just a sickening imprimatur from one UFO geezer for another UFO geezer's attempt to dethrone a UFO researcher's extensive work about a controversial episode in the UFO canon.

  • I thought Clark's review hit all the key points, but I was turned off by his needless jibe at the Ramseys for how they listed the authors of the book. It was a prime example of Clark's ego, and had no place in a review other than to make himself feel important.

  • "It was a prime example of Clark's ego, and had no place in a review other than to make himself feel important."

    That neatly sums up this here blog! Raises some interesting points, which is why I read it occasionally, but my gosh does the over-weighted ego of its creator, so obviously infatuated with his own intellectual cleverness grow tiresome at times.

    Never mind.

  • Professor Jerome Clark, Ph.D. needs no one to kiss his ass!!

    ...this proud holder of a genuine High School Diploma has NEVER required any further training to be an expert on all things unusual!!!!

    (after all, he DOES read the NYT religiously, even the words he doesn't understand....)

    And as Editor, International UFO Reporter, he single-handedly managed to destroy CUFOS:

    P.S. I loved David Halperin's cameo in 'Planet of the Apes'!!!
