The "Hall of Fame" concept is nothing new in the world of UFOs and the paranormal. Royce Myers III at UFO Watchdog has had a UFO Hall of Fame (and a Hall of Shame) for years now. Steven Bassett has one with his X-Conference. Tim Binnall, when he was plugging the Brad Steiger episode a week ago, referred to Steiger as a "sure-fire first ballot esoteric Hall of Famer". And so on.
Never one to let a good idea pass me by, I've decided, after over two years here at The Other Side of Truth, to create a UFO Hall of Fame for this blog. Now, no offense to Royce or others who have created a Hall of Fame on their own, but whereas they have basically just picked the members themselves, I'm a big believer in vox populi, i.e. let the people decide. So, without further ado, in much the same way as the baseball Hall of Fame elects its members, here is the first ballot for the Other Side of Truth UFO Hall of Fame.
The first class will have five members, so the five people who get the most votes over the next month are in.
Your call, folks. My vote will just be one of many. Write in votes will also be allowed - you can either leave them as a comment, or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voting will stay open until 12:01 am, August 10, 2007.
