Bob Wilson died a couple of days ago. Now, I've known Bob as long as I can remember in all kinds of contexts; he was that kind of guy. I recall him attending a Gnostic Mass at Eulis Lodge when Bil and Lacy and I were the officers, and a long chat afterwards; speaking together at conspiracy buff conventions, and like that. He was very kind to me in "Everything is Under Control" which it isn't, and shouldn't be, which was kinda the point.
No matter what the context, he always called me "the UFO guy" which was fine with me.
This film says a lot about RAW. He was a friend of the movement, but not much of a joiner. An antiauthoritarian down to his soul. A lot of people will miss him, me very much included. I'm afraid the end of his life was not so pleasant; when Tim Beckley contacted me to let me know he had passed on, I felt that kind of grief and relief one feels for the long suffering.
