I read his book Alien Agenda about a year ago. It was better than the science fiction books about Aliens.

"It was better than the science fiction books about Aliens."

Ahem...his book IS science fiction.

It's investigative research not science fiction.

I think the folks at the NY Times need to get out of the city more often. What part of those directions sounds X-File-y to them: the seven miles, the green gate, or the steep hill? Fairly ordinary as far as directions go. That's some wicked spin!
And the No Trespassing sign heightens the mystery? What mystery?! I guess it's a good thing he didn't have one of those Texas & Southwestern Cattleraisers Association signs up as well. We'd be getting the print version of an earful of conspiracy theory on cow mutilation.

Jim Marr appeared on the Kevin McCarthy Show many times when McCarthy & David Gold ruled the DFW talk radio landscape.

Mr. Marr also taught a non-credit course at UT-Arlington on the Kennedy conspiracy nonsense.

They could have paid ol' Jim West a visit for a discussion on the alien life in Aurora.

His wife, Carol, used to teach at B'port HS. Very cool teacher.

I'm happy to celebrate another writer's success. Being profiled in the NYT is a big deal. His chosen subject matter's not my cuppa tea, but he's clearly been successful with it. He took a great pic, too, with his natty hat. If he'd only had a pipe it would've been perfect.

His daughter is Cat Lafitte. She's the Dallas PD officer that was fired for throwing a shoe at the hospital orderly a while back. I think BSG blogged about it.

The article is actually from Texas Monthly and the writer, Christopher Kelly, was recently let go by the Star-Telegram.

If this story actually did originate from Texas Monthly, then that's just sad that they allow the silly sensationalism in those first two paragraphs. The directions and the No Trespassing sign are thoroughly Texan. Judging by the article writer's standards, about every farmer and rancher in the state is odd and needs to be investigated.
If it's from the same Christopher Kelly that was recently the film critic for the Star-Telegram, it makes sense. He stunk as a film reviewer, so it would follow that he stinks at writing articles
