We won't have LMH to kick around any more

Coast to Coast AM put up this announcement today:
« Because of other career commitments, including work on her autobiography, Linda Moulton Howe will no longer be presenting her monthly reports on Coast to Coast AM. "Thank you," Linda wrote to George Noory, "for the monthly air time" (dating back to 2003 with George, and 1991 with Art Bell). "Those 28 years have been a privilege for me to broadcast my Earthfiles science, environment and Real X-Files news...Cheers to more light and truth everywhere!"
We thank Linda for her outstanding contributions to Coast over the years, and wish her the best in all future endeavors. »
        "Light and truth" is not what this blog has seen in LMH's work over the years—far from it. Here's a selection of links to historic LMH postings here:

July 3, 2016: "Their ships were far superior to ours"
Linda swallows the utterly daft story about Apollo astronauts being warned to stay away from the Moon by extraterrestrials. She later deleted the story, but instead swallowed the slightly less daft story about Apollo 11 being followed to the Moon by an alien spacecraft.

December 22, 2017: "Open letter to Linda Moulton Howe"
Linda makes a complete hash of an interview with John Brandenburg.

December 2, 2018: "Linda Moulton Howe throws her reputation away"
Linda in even more gullible mood as she swallows barefaced lies by a man claiming to have been an astronaut on secret Apollo missions. Among other problems with Jon Lavine's story, he described landing at a site that would have been permanently out of touch with Planet Earth.

December 30, 2018: "Linda Moulton Howe capitulates"
Linda withdraws the Jon Lavine story, but suggests that he is a victim of MKULTRA-style memory substitution, rather than what he actually is—a liar and a fraud.

        In my ever-so-humble opinion, Linda is no great loss to radio. Her voice is awful, and I'm not the only listener who has that opinion. She all too often lets her thirst for sensationalism overcome any sincere journalisitc talent she may have.

        I will not be reading the autobiography, and I presume she won't be reading mine if it's ever published either. Tit (no pun intended) for tat. Tat is exactly what this woman specializes in.

This is seriously funny

Apollo 10 transcript, Day 6

05 13 29 44 Stafford: "Ohh —Who did it?"
05 13 29 46 Young: "Who did what?"
05 13 29 47 Cernan: "What?"
05 13 29 49 Stafford: "Who did it?" (Laughter)
05 13 29 51 Cernan: "Where did that come from?"
05 13 29 52 Stafford: "Give me a napkin quick. There's a turd floating through the air."
05 13 29 55 Young: "I didn't do it. It ain't one of mine."
05 13 29 57 Cernan: "I don't think it's one of mine."
05 13 29 59 Stafford: "Mine was a little more sticky than that. Throw that away."
05 13 30 06 Young: "God Almighty."
