Silver Bridge Disaster 40 Years On (Greg Bishop)

Despite numerous attempts to debunk the Mothman itself, the concatenation of strange events in the area from 1966-67 still continues to defy rational explanation, and is a classic case of a paranormal "window"-type event. Like hauntings and UFO flaps, the period of strangeness lasted for a finite amount of time, and Keel looked at the period in a way that still provides a good lens to examine other spooky goings-on.

Amazing but true, I had travelled across this bridge many times as a youth. My father had lived in Point Pleasant as a child and we visited friends and distant family members there many times. Being from that general area of the country I was very aware of the Mothman reports.
The reports were often carried on local radio broadcasts as part of the regular news.

It was pretty creepy stuff then and I can assure you, long before anyone else began paying attention to these stories, many people in Point Pleasant were convinced something very strange had been happening there for quite some time.

Then again, look who's talking.

I don't know. Someone has to accept one of my proposals and pay me! The publishing business is very strange.
