It’s May 7, 1998, and I am sitting in a friend’s house in New York City a day after taping the Rosie O’Donnell show. At the moment, the show is going to air on July 20, but that may change. When the date is firm, it will appear in my schedule.

Ever since Rosie sent me a letter about her experiences years ago, I have counted her among the celebrities that I couldn’t talk about but wished I could. But what she says on her show has changed all that. When the show airs, this country is going to be amazed by one woman’s courage, strength of character and sterling honesty. It will be a moment never to be forgotten.

In the fall, I worked on a feature for Life Magazine with a distinguished photographer, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Tim has been a friend for many years, and was the first person outside of my family who I told about my close encounter experiences. We went to New York, Denver, Ventura, Glenrock, Wyoming and Gulf Breeze to take pictures of UFO and close encounter witnesses. I was to write a narrative of our journey and tell a little bit about what the people had experienced.

That sighting began a series of sightings in Florida that has been quite amazing. To date, there have been over three hundred, I understand. A few days after we had ours, a witness took a video of a daylight disk that was shown on local TV.

Since Pat Robertson suggested that people who believe in aliens ought to be stoned to death, there has been a slight but worrisome increase in my security problems. Heretofore, I have never experienced any sense of threat at all, except at the end at our old cabin in upstate New York. Unfortunately, since I have the only easily recognized face in the field, Robertson might as well have suggested that I, personally, be stoned to death. The irony, of course, is that I am still not a “believer.” Until there is scientific proof, I don’t see why we should burden ourselves with beliefs about anything. But the combination of all the media attention and the vivid nature of my own reports has certainly created an image of me as the number-one UFO believer.
