For those of you who haven't heard, Jim Marrs had died. He was famous for his book, Alien Agenda and his book on the Kennedy assassination, Crossfire. That book became the basis for Oliver Stone's movie, JFK.
Personally, I meant Marrs only twice and both times at UFO symposium or conferences. We disagree on several cases such as the UFO crash at Aurora, Texas in 1897, but that didn't mean that we argued loudly or attacked each others research techniques or beliefs. He was always cordial and answered the questions of his fans politely and with grace.
Although Publisher's Weekly savaged Alien Agenda, that didn't stop the public from buying it and according to some, it is the top selling UFO book of all time.
Interestingly, and like so many of the rest of us, he had his own radio show, "The View from Marrs," that was heard three times a week at 3:00 p.m. central time.
Jim Marrs who had a big voice in the UFO field, is gone. I suspect he now knows the ultimate truth and it would be fun to read what he had to say about it.
