Oh Canada - Wilbert Smith & UFOs
It's been an interesting ride. I've been called everything from a Christo-fascist to a neo-con, and a klasskurtzian debunker to a rampant narcissist. All of this has also been pretty amusing to those who really know me. :-)
On the flip side, as the sidebar shows, plenty of good people in and around ufology seem to like The Other Side of Truth. Again, all of this has been pretty amusing (in a different way than the critiques) to those who really know me. :-)
The critics are clearly bad people, evil-doers to the core. Boo, hiss! The fans are clearly good people, discerning, intelligent and thoughtful. Yay!
Seriously, though... oh, wait - I was being serious. Or was I??
All that I know is that I've been true to myself, and that's really all that matters. I've enjoyed presenting both the research and the opinions - and yes, even the narcissistic little bits about me and my world. Expect more of the same in 2006.
As Captain Kirk said, "it's been fun."
Happy New Year!
