Nice to have all the loonies in one bin.

Re: Thomas Baker... poor fellow. He only wanted to help. In seeking to serve, he was himself served.

I'm signed up. I think it will be fun to watch Ashmore demonstrate that he doesn't know an Electra from a coconut palm.

That's the root of the problem.

I have registered to participate via Zoom, not as a presenter but to offer comments, questions, and corrections as may be appropriate.

Now that the thread is relocated, I've had a chance to come back to your original post, Ric.

This line has provoked the best laugh I've had in months!

When Roger and I were in Fiji, we saw a memorial to Thomas Baker, the last missionary who was killed and eaten in the Cannibal Islands.  If I'm not mistaken, his last words were, "I only came to offer comments, questions, and corrections."   ::)

Seeing that
Michael Ashmore is a presenter makes me think that I'll pass on this conference.

I have moved this topic to "Alternate Lines of Inquiry," as Ric requested.

People who click on "Show unread posts since last visit" will see new posts in this thread.  "Show unread posts since last visit" shows new posts in any of the sections of the Amelia Earhart Search Forum.

Marty, please move this topic to Alternate Lines of Inquiry.

The TAC Earhart-Noonan Symposium is not a TIGHAR function and none of the hypotheses scheduled to be presented are endorsed by TIGHAR.

That said, it's good that the presenters have a place to present their papers.  I have registered to participate via Zoom, not as a presenter but to offer comments, questions, and corrections as may be appropriate.
