New Blog
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:58:24 AM »

We've added a blog to the TIGHAR website. https://tighar.org/wordpress/  it seemed like the best way to handle stuff like the following:

A TIGHAR member recently sent an email to Nauticos president David Jourdan, presently at sea as leader of the Eustace Earhart Discovery Expedition, asking why Mr. Jourdan’s conclusions about the fate of Amelia Earhart are so different from TIGHAR’s. In his reply, Mr. Jourdan explained why he thinks the Earhart Electra is on the ocean bottom near Howland Island. Unfortunately, he then launched into a surprisingly uninformed attempt to disparage TIGHAR’s work, including ad hominem attacks on me, TIGHAR’s executive director. We generally ignore such tirades, but Mr. Jourdan’s deserves a response.

Slight change of plan.  Turns out that iPhones have a problem connecting with WordPress blogs.  We’ll switch to a different blog provider.  I’ll let you know when it’s up.

We switched from WordPress to Blogspot. We're still having a problem with the Comments section (we'll get it sorted out) but the blog should now be accessible to all mobile devises. Let us know if you have a problem. Thanks for your patience.

..and back to WordPress.  After some software adventures, heroically dealt with by Pat and Marty Moleski, the new blog is up and running.

All three parts of my response to Nauticos are now up the The Left Seat blog.
