I figured everyone knew about Ten Thirteen...I'm re-watching all three seasons of Millennium lately so I see that shit all the time. I figured it was an X-Files in-joke.
As to why Dolan has turned to Stanton Friedman, Jim Marrs and some hollywood pouf named Bryce Zabel, well...that's a whole other Other. Definitely got me sadface, though.
Dolan paid his dues, though...go get that idiot money, buddy, you earned it. Have fun on the other side.
Richard Dolan wrote:When I entered this field years ago, I had a major learning curve ahead of me. For better or for worse (and it’s clear that many here believe “for worse”), I am not simply a historian of UFOs, but am at times actively engaged in something like “disclosure.” Being in that position means that I deal with all kinds of people, some more savory than others – and a few who are less so. In most cases, I find that people and their situations are more complex than I initially thought from a safe distance. It is easy to rail at people from afar. Harder after you meet them face to face and gain nuance that seldom arises from a distance. I assume most people reading this have an understanding of that experience.
It is true that I have a very high tolerance for dealing with a very broad range of people. That’s an acquired skill, and I can assure you it isn’t always easy to employ. Still, if I want to do what I do, it is necessary. In my situation, I have had intimate conversations with some individuals who would be positively scary to many people. I have also been involved with all sorts of researchers – some outstanding, others not so much, and still others who have had one or two good ideas, along with a whole lot of bad ones. I have dealt with ‘true believers,’ ‘true skeptics,’ ‘true disinformation artists,’ and every other kind of person, and have usually had something to learn from all of them.
At all times I have done what I have done because I have a message to relate, and am attempting to make a positive difference. That includes the Camelot conference. If you don’t like my attendance there, there’s not anything else I can tell you, unless you haven’t actually listened to what I had to say. And then, shame on you if you criticize anyone without actually listening to what they said. What kind of research is that?
In the years and generations to come, whatever judgment there is on my work will center on what I have had to say. Yeats put it very well: “words alone are certain good.”
Thanks and best wishes.

A parent was bringing about 40 iridescent pearl balloons to the school for language arts teacher Andrea Craparo when the wind spent a bunch away around 1 p.m.
"They looked big and they were all together, so it looked like one UFO," said fourth-grader Nia Foster, 9.

It is NOT synonymous with "spaceship," or "flying saucer," or "craft containing intelligent beings not of this earth."
So, if a person sees an object that is flying, and that person is unable to identify that object, then that person has seen an Unidentified Flying Object, or...

Gosh darn, that shit annoys the fuck out of me.
