In her new diary, Anne Strieber writes: “When we were visiting our good friend in Texas, saying goodbye, Whitley overheard some of her caretakers saying, ‘We can’t let Whitley speak at the funeral.’ He assumed they were afraid he would mention one of the last ‘taboo topics’ in our society?UFOs?so we decided not to go. This got me to thinking about the fact that being ‘anti-UFO,’ and making fun of people who are interested in them or who (God forbid!) confess their experiences with them, is one of the last acceptable prejudices in this country.”
