In 2004, when Seymour Hersh began reporting on Abu Ghraib for The New Yorker, he brought to bear not just his political acuity and finely tuned prose, but also a long history of investigating the darkest aspects of America's foreign entanglements. Hersh won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970 for exposing the My Lai Massacre, and his extended treatment of the tragedy and its subsequent cover-up helped set the template for investigative reporting for decades to come. His 2004 book, Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib, is an essential document of the buildup to and unraveling of the Iraq War. - Max Goldberg

The San Francisco DECOMPRESSION Heat the Street FaIRE! is October 12th, so it is time to save the date and pARTicipate! To reserve a space for your art, theme camp, mutant vehicle, or performance at the SF Decom, please email flambe(at)burningman(dot)com TODAY so we can accommodate and celebrate YOUR imagination and spirit. We especially need fire performance and fire/steam art submissions before Burning Man to support the fire permit process (by Sept 12 absolute latest!) - so tell us now how you would like to help heat the street!

And join the dream team! Decompression is organized through a massive team of amazing volunteers - to be one, email firekitty(at)burningman(dot)com.

The DECOMandments

Follow the DECOMandments below to radically enjoy and protect our event!

* Arrive Early! Come at NOON, pack a picnic and enjoy a full day of amazing art, people and programming! Don't come late or you WILL miss amazing experiences and spectacles scheduled only EARLY in the day. Enter at 19th & Minnesota; the other entries are for registered artists/performers.

* Green Your Commute! Don't waste gas seeking a parking spot; parade to the event with thousands of others on public transportation or bike! There will be bike racks at 19th & Minnesota. Or carpool and park at the UCSF lot at 16th & 3rd (3 blocks away with special discounted parking rate), at the ballpark, or on Illinois Street. Please do not park or drive on Minnesota Street or Indiana Street. There will be a taxi stand between 18th and 19th on Minnesota for your convenience.

* Express yourself! Wear your finest playa pageantry or trashion, using imaginatively recycled and reusable materials! Even better, illuminate them with solar lighting for night! And bring warm layers.

* pARTicipate! The world is a stage, and we are all performers, not spectators. We always have room for installation art (especially on the fences), but we're FULL on theme camps, sound, DJ/performance schedules, mutant vehicles and fire. To register art, please email flambe(at)burningman(dot)com TODAY so we can accommodate and celebrate YOUR special contribution to this amazing community. All sound systems, fire art, theme camps and vehicles must be registered - renegade sound or unapproved fire would jeopardize this event. The experience we all share ignites through mass participation, so find your own gift of creative expression to bring!

* Volunteer! We need more volunteers! To be part of the process and team that makes Decompression so special, email firekitty(at)burningman(dot)com. For a list of volunteer positions available, see here.

* Share Your Favorite Playa Photos/Videos! We need the content upfront this year, so please email flambe(at)burningman(dot)com and we'll help you get it up on the big Decom screen!

* HELP US... Express Responsibly! Protect the event and our beautiful new park. We need YOUR help in these ways so we can keep having Decom on public streets:

- Respect the Dogpatch neighborhood, our home for 8 years - enter and leave surrounding blocks quietly;
- Don't park in driveways or on Minnesota Street;
- Refrain from drumming and loud noise after 10 PM;
- No stakes, unleashed dogs, or vehicles or bikes of any kind in the park;
- No drumming, loud or amplified sound after 10PM ANYWHERE. The only exception will be the Mariposa Stage performance until 11PM. If anyone is drumming or making amplified noise on the street after 10pm, please stop it!
- Do stay 10PM-midnight, quietly talk and enjoy the art, theme camps, and community;
- No unapproved sound systems or fire art of any kind. Even chaos has a master plan!

* And of course… Leave No Trace! Pick up trash you see and recycle! Breakdown is 10PM-midnight for the park and 12-2AM everywhere else. By 2AM, EVERYTHING must be gone and small debris swept into the street for the street sweepers. If you are a registered art car or theme camp, please take extra care to not drive over ANY electric cables or distro boxes during setup/breakdown. Take special care during exodus.

* Come back Monday: Please come back Monday, October 13th 11am-4pm for our annual neighborhood and park clean-up! We want to leave things in even BETTER shape than we found them. So, we'll start on Minnesota and 19th, move to the park, Indiana, then surrounding streets. Many hands make light work and every year we leave the neighborhood cleaner than we found it. Bring gloves, brooms, shovels and plastic bags if you got 'em. We'll bring donuts and love you even more! HOORAY!!!

We are on our way to making this our best Decompression ever and a showcase for our art and community in San Francisco. So, help us bring our magical dream of Black ROCK City home to heat the streets of Black TOP City!!

Mon Oct 13 7:30pm Naomi Wolf & Daniel Ellsberg: "Give Me Liberty"
First Congregational Church 2345 Channing Way at Dana Berkeley, CA or
$15 / $12 advance One of the most revered — and reviled — figures of third-wave feminism, Naomi Wolf made her name by penning oft-controversial, highly personal feminist critiques on everything from pornography, hijab dress, and the virgin/whore complex to abortion, sexual harassment, and adolescent sexuality. However, in recent years, the writer, activist, and Al Gore image consultant has abandoned the strictly feminist concerns of The Beauty Myth and Promiscuities in favor of more straightforward, albeit radical, political analysis. Tonight, Wolf discusses her new power-to-the-people tome, Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries, with Pentagon Papers whistleblower and longtime anti-war activist Daniel Ellsberg. - Suzanne Niemoth
