Last Friday I posted my interview with Leslie Kean about her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record. The book has been getting good publicity and generating plenty of discussion again about the UFO topic. That publicity is likely to skyrocket (pun intended) though, as Leslie will be Stephen Colbert’s guest on The Colbert Report this Monday, August 23rd, at 11:30 pm (hah, beat him to the punch on an interview…in your face Colbert!). Make sure you tune in if you have access to the show – should be an interesting face-to-face, given the controversial topic and Colbert’s provocative interview style.
Update: Here’s the spot:

I’ve also noticed that UFO skeptic James Oberg has been busy posting a number of comments in the reviews section for the book at Amazon, signaling his intent to publish his own review of the book soon with “substantial criticisms of the book’s thesis and approach to evidence”, as well as its conclusions. So settle in folks, looks like UFOs is going to provoke plenty of back and forth – and as always, TDG gives you ringside seats.
Update: Here’s Oberg’s piece. Not overly impressed, he basically boils it down to “pilots make mistakes too, can’t explain these cases, but just because it will take too much time”.
