I do not think John has posted around here in a while. He offered on here to have a beer with me sometime if I was ever around Vegas.
He does have some interesting stories that I can tell are true, and others that well, I have no idea where he came up with them.

I'd like to see that. Too bad I don't get Showtime. Sounds to me like Lear was ambushed. With some deft editing, almost anyone can be made to look like a crackpot. Lear's theories are far enough out there that it wouldn't take much editing.
Let's face it, you could take almost any member of this website and they could be made to look fairly foolish to the mainstream just by virtue of having an interest in the topics here.
I'm thinking back to the UFO "special" done on TV a few years ago with Peter Jennings. There was enough snarkiness and eye rolling in there to be an editorial comment all by itself.
I like Lear, although I don't know him personally. I don't agree with many (if any) of his views about ETs, space, "secret astronauts", "NAZA", etc. but he's a fascinating guy with an impressive background.

John's quote on another forum last week :
" But like I say when they did the interview nothing was mentioned about Penn &Teller. I was told it was for a Showtime UFO Special. The first I heard anything about Penn and Teller was the day before yesterday when I got that post card in the mail." ( John Lear )

An interviewer was sent out, then Gillette dubbed his voice over their voice.
