At Fort Worth Army Air Field, Major Jesse A. Marcel (looking left) of Houma, LA – holding foil debris from Roswell, New Mexico, UFO incident, 07/08/1947

After some contemplation I think it is time to put the incident at Roswell in 1947 to rest.

It has been sixty years and no more is known about what happened there than we new twenty years ago. The only people that might have a problem with moving on to more recent occurrences are those that make their living from keeping that incident alive .

Author and Lecturer Stanton Friedman is one of the biggest offenders in that category.

for those that don’t know former physicist Stanton Friedman went down to Louisiana in February 1978 and dug up an old TV repairman Jesse Marcel that contradicted his story from 30 years earlier but old Stan decided to run with it anyway. by 1980 Stanton had brought in Charles Berlitz onboard and cash started to roll on in. . Yes, Charles Berlitz. The guy most notable for his language courses onboard and cash started to roll on in.

Anyway, so Stan finds this guy who contradicts himself on the original story. He backs it up with a newspaper article and away he goes. He’s been making a living off of it ever since.

No I am not saying that Jesse Marcel didn’t see something in Roswell New Mexico in 1947. What he saw I have no idea.

A lot of people have made a substantial amount of money keeping this incident alive but it is time to let it go. It was a good run.

Look were never going to know for sure who shot JFK. We are never going to Know for sure that men have been on the moon. Were never going to know why Jay Novella over at skeptics guide can’t pronounce a “T” in the middle of a word. So why can’t we get all of these hot shot UFO investigator to focus on something more recent like the O’Hare airport incident or the recent sightings in Greenville and Stephenville (not Stephens Ville) Texas. Guys get a new shtick.

I will tell you why they can’t move on. You can’t sell books about UFO’s in Greenville, Texas.

Call me a liar STAN.
