James Moseley's "Saucer Smear" (2005)

For those who've never seen or read the grand, snarky Saucer Smear by Jim Moseley, here's a copy (which contains something from our friend CDA -- Christopher Allen -- and a mention of our one time nemesis, Wendy Connors):

  • Rich, thanks for the post. Moseley's knack for sarcasm was outstanding. Same could be said of Karl Pflock. I know not of anyone that have taken up the mantle of these two.

    "Crusty" CDA comes close to filling that void in comment sections.

    Zoam? Well, one never knows if he is serious or not...that's why I refer to him as the "Old Testament" warrior for the skeptics.

    It's the insightful sarcasm that I love.

  • Ufology has become a sarcastic thing, Tim, and not in the tongue-in-cheek style of Moseley et al.

    It used to be fun to read barbs from fellow UFO buffs.

    Not so much today. Everyone wants to be a notable. But in the UFO field?

    That's a kind of oxymoron.

  • Thanks for posting this Rich, Ive not seen it before very interesting. Ive been debating for a while with a friend about the Admiral Byrd HOAX (my friend believes it) so I was pleased to see a reference to it.

  • Alas: poor James! His like are far and few between. He's one of those characters that I've always wanted to meet in person. Alas it was never meant to happen.

    He left a grand legacy, not only in "Smear" in this book

    "Shockingly Close to the Truth!: Confessions of a Grave-Robbing Ufologist"

    Which I believe should be required reading by anyone interested in the "biz."


    He shall be missed!
