How to Make the Roswell Slides Fiasco Right

Apologies from the promoters of the Roswell Slides fiasco in Mexico City, even if they are forthcoming, are not enough. It's easy to say you're sorry while you still hold the cash. The way to make it right, or at least as right as it can be, is as simple as it was for the Roswell Slides Research Group to solve the "mystery" - the promoters must immediately offer a full refund on each and every ticket sold to the May 5th event. Those who were only participants in the event or the build-up to it, like Anthony Bragalia and Richard Dolan, can begin to restore some of their reputation by publicly calling on the prime organizers of the event to take this step.

Anything less is just as worthless and hollow as the event itself.

Agreed. Refunds are in order. But, let's face it, they are not about to willingly refund one red cent unless a court orders them to do so.

I'd like to take this a step further. When The "Hitler Diaries" were proved to be a hoax, the perpetrators received three years in prison.

With the conning of people out of money, I see at least a class action suit for those folks to recoup their money.

Pertaining to criminal charges, precedent has been set for criminally charging those involved in this type of illegal activity.

Even if a refund was given they, Carey and Schmitt, would just get it back by releasing their new book, a book I bet has just had to lose a hell of a lot of pages.

Dolan endorse the negatives before the event..saying the bodywas impressive and not explainable..was advertising the event,as payed speakers..Used to respect him,but after this and his recent commentaries at Hangar 1,should be listed in the charlatan's borderland on the pantheon of certified talking mediatic heads...

Dolan ,Carey ,Schmitt are now in the same league as Greer and Romanek.

Paul, I know you've already seen this, just wanted to post this for your readers -

Found in the September 1938 Volume VIII, Number 1 Mesa Verde Notes that was published by the National Park Service was an article that definitively solves the mystery of the “Roswell Slides.” In paragraph four of the section of the publication entitled Around The Mesa was found this:

“A splendid mummy was received by the Park Museum recently when Mr. S.L. Palmer Jr. of San Francisco returned one that his father had taken from the ruins in 1894. The mummy is that of a two year old boy and is in an excellent state of preservation. At the time of burial the body was clad in a slip-over cotton shirt and three small cotton blankets. Fragments of these are still on the mummy.” The full text of the article can be found in this link:

This paragraph corresponds directly to the slides placard: the mummified body of a two year old boy, three small cotton blankets (the word “three” understandably seen by the de-blurring program as “these”) and Mr. Xxxxx of San Francisco, California.

Everyone has about the same chance of getting a Roswell Slides Refund as getting a refund from the Palm Reader/Fortune Teller at boardwalk in New Jersey.
