I first met Robert Sheaffer in 1977.
Two years later, James Oberg flew
into Washington, DC, I picked him up
at the airport, and the three of us got
together here at Sheaffer's home.

A few months earlier, Oberg had won an
international essay competition on UFOs
co-sponsored by New Scientist  magazine
and Britain's Cutty Sark Whiskey company.
The pro-UFO community was incensed
that his winning entry, "The Failure of
the 'Science' of Ufology
," was, as its
name indicates, an indictment of the field.
