Thanks for the link, I'd been waiting for that. First, I question the judgement of both gentlemen for associating themselves with the host program, but maybe both wanted the exposure it would bring.

Friedman brought very little new to the debate, mostly just a performance in part of his Cosmic Watergate lecture. Sheaffer brought up many good points, and I thought he really scored with the Canadian UFO/booster reentry and the Fish map flop. (Did you notice how Friedman had to retreat on the map by saying eyewitnesses are unreliable?)

Friedman is verbally dynamic and has a practiced response that almost seems to deflate any skeptical argument, and he's also a master of shifting gears to reach a position of strength.

I doubt many minds were changed, and the neutral probably weren't even listening to be influenced either way.
