      >>>>>>>> not a participant in the SAB discussions about the ongoing
      >>>>>>>> study, but I know that there were several vigorous debates
      >>>>>>>> within the organization about the ranch and about the
      >>>>>>>> direction the study should take. If the book leaves the

      >>>>>>>> follow for something like this. As far as I know, there

      >>>>>>>> precedent for a long-term study of this nature. The reasons

      >>>>>>>> pop up
      >>>>>>>> at the same place, in different forms, over such an

      >>>>>>>> independent,
      >>>>>>>> privately sponsored operation like NIDS, which had the
      >>>>>>>> resources and expertise to take something like this on.
      >>>>>>>> I'm
      >>>>>>>> not blowing smoke up their butts when I say that the
      >>>>>>>> study was
      >>>>>>>> extraordinary. Is there a scientist on this list who would
      >>>>>>>> not amputate a digit or two to be able to participate in a
      >>>>>>>> study of this nature, one that is not constrained by the
      >>>>>>>> presumed interests of government grant-writers or
      >>>>>>>> university
      >>>>>>>> administrators? Seriously, this was a unique and
      >>>>>>>> fascinating
      >>>>>>>> undertaking. If mistakes were made, they weren't the
      >>>>>>>> result of
      >>>>>>>> any sinister intentions or hidden agendas. To my
      >>>>>>>> knowledge,
      >>>>>>>> everyone who had a say in the research had the same

      >>>>>>>> get answers ro the questions that are banging around in the
      >>>>>>>> heads of everyone who is reading this.
      >>>>>>>>
      >>>>>>>> Ron made one comment that got under my skin. He questioned
      >>>>>>>> the "intent" of the authors because of what he perceived
      >>>>>>>> as a
      >>>>>>>> poor explanation of "the camera incident". If we
      >>>>>>>> didn't make
      >>>>>>>> things clear in the book, it's our own fault. I'm going to
      >>>>>>>> take a look at those pages and give it some thought.
      >>>>>>>> However,
      >>>>>>>> the implication that the confusion Ron felt might be the
      >>>>>>>> result of "intent" on the part of the co-authors is
      >>>>>>>> unfair and
      >>>>>>>> unfounded. I didn't get the sense that Ron was really
      >>>>>>>> pushing
      >>>>>>>> this point, only that it was a question that occurred to
      >>>>>>>> him,
      >>>>>>>> so I won't go overboard in my response except to say
      >>>>>>>> that he
      >>>>>>>> is dead wrong. Dr. Colm Kelleher is an honest man, a
      >>>>>>>> solid
      >>>>>>>> scientist, and a good guy. He put everything on the
      >>>>>>>> line to
      >>>>>>>> join NIDS---everything---and he spent thousands of hours
      >>>>>>>> out
      >>>>>>>> there in the darkness of the ranch, wallking the property
      >>>>>>>> until 4 or 5 in the morning, sometimes in temperatures
      >>>>>>>> below
      >>>>>>>> freezing, trying to interact with an intelligence that
      >>>>>>>> repeatedly displayed its mastery of the terrain, its
      >>>>>>>> ability
      >>>>>>>> to terrify humans, and its penchant for the occasional
      >>>>>>>> mutilation and/or incineration of other species. He was
      >>>>>>>> reluctant to participate in writing the book out of
      >>>>>>>> loyalty to
      >>>>>>>> his colleagues at NIDS and his concern for the "Gorman"
      >>>>>>>> family, so in my estimation, he had no agenda or "intent".
      >>>>>>>> I've known him for 7 or 8 years now and can say without any
      >>>>>>>> hesitation that he is a straight shooter. I'd like to
      >>>>>>>> believe
      >>>>>>>> that the same goes for me. Few people on this list have
      >>>>>>>> ever
      >>>>>>>> met me, but I'm known in my own community as a good
      >>>>>>>> journalist. My interest in unusual phenomena has caused me
      >>>>>>>> considerable grief, personally and professionally, but I
      >>>>>>>> have
      >>>>>>>> stuck my neck way, way out for a lot of years now
      >>>>>>>> because I'm
      >>>>>>>> convinced the subject matter deserves serious
      >>>>>>>> consideration by
      >>>>>>>> science and journalism. If there is another mainstream
      >>>>>>>> journalist in the country who has put more work into
      >>>>>>>> this area
      >>>>>>>> than I have over the last 20 years, I'd be amazed. I've
      >>>>>>>> made
      >>>>>>>> mistakes, of course, but to suggest that I have some
      >>>>>>>> agenda or
      >>>>>>>> that Colm has an unspecified "intent" is simply and
      >>>>>>>> factually
      >>>>>>>> incorrect. We wrote the book on our own, without any
      >>>>>>>> influence or guidelines from anyone except for our
      >>>>>>>> editor at
      >>>>>>>> Paraview. Only one person associated with NIDS even knew
      >>>>>>>> about the book until it was already written. Could the
      >>>>>>>> book
      >>>>>>>> be better than it is? Of course. I'd like to rewrite it
      >>>>>>>> tomorrow. And two weeks from now, I'd probably like to
      >>>>>>>> re-write it again. But whatever its shortcomings might
      >>>>>>>> be, they did not stem from any unspecified or
      >>>>>>>> suspicious "intent"
      >>>>>>>> on our part. For the time being, I suppose you will
      >>>>>>>> just have
      >>>>>>>> to take our word for it.

      >>>>>>>> Ron questions whether the NIDS team was aggressive
      >>>>>>>> enough in
      >>>>>>>> its pursuit of the phenomena. In particular, he asks if
      >>>>>>>> this

      >>>>>>>> detailed
      >>>>>>>> discussion of this right now, but in the days ahead, either
      >>>>>>>> Colm or myself will try to address this very valid
      >>>>>>>> matter. For now, let me say that these exact issues were
      >>>>>>>> debated
      >>>>>>>> within NIDS over many months. There were distinct
      >>>>>>>> disagreements within the organization about how the study
      >>>>>>>> should proceed and what kind of presence NIDS should
      >>>>>>>> have on
      >>>>>>>> the ranch. In other words, the decisions that were made
      >>>>>>>> about
      >>>>>>>> what direction the study should take were not casual
      >>>>>>>> afterthoughts or spontaneous whims. I'm reasonably
      >>>>>>>> confident
      >>>>>>>> that the principal players at NIDS have reconsidered and
      >>>>>>>> rethought their decisions about the ranch many many
      >>>>>>>> times, and
      >>>>>>>> are still being pondered by some even though NIDS itself
      >>>>>>>> is in
      >>>>>>>> hibernation. All I can tell you is that a group of highly
      >>>>>>>> intelligent people engaged in lengthy--and sometimes
      >>>>>>>> heated---discussions about these exact questions. In
      >>>>>>>> retrospect, there are things that probably would have been
      >>>>>>>> done differently. Maybe there will be an opportunity
      >>>>>>>> in the
      >>>>>>>> future to consider other approaches, but that probably
      >>>>>>>> depends
