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

A few months earlier,
Oberg had won a world-
wide essay competition
on UFOs. The pro-UFO
community was incensed
that his winning entry,
"The Failure of the
'Science' of Ufology"
(posted here and here)
was, as its name
indicates, an indictment
of the field.
