How the FBI and 9/11 Commission Suppressed Key Evidence
About Hani Hanjour, Alleged Hijack Pilot of AAL 77
Mark H. Gaffney

The evidence was crucial because it undermined the official explanation that
Hani Hanjour crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon at high
speed after executing an extremely difficult top gun maneuver. But to
understand how all of this played out, let us review the case in bite-size pieces...

Ask a Scientist [July 14]: How to Keep an Illustrated Field Journal
TOPIC: How to Keep an Illustrated Field Journal
Tonight naturalist, biologist, educator, and artist John "Jack" Muir Laws will teach us how to start and keep a daily illustrated field journal. Jack, who spent six years backpacking the Sierra Nevada to research and illustrate The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada, will share tricks and techniques for drawing birds, mammals, plants, and landscapes; noting signs of the season; and achieving the discipline and good habits that will help you keep your journal going once you've started. Learn to observe and appreciate the natural world in a whole new way. No drawing experience is necessary. Bring your own sketchpad and pencils if you want to follow along.
SPEAKER: John Muir Laws, Freelance Illustrator, Teacher of Natural History Field Observation and Illustration at City College, and Research Associate at California Academy of Sciences.

The Money Fix: Film Screening and Discussion $5-15 sliding scale donation
Thursday, July 23rd, 7-9:30pm La Pena Cultural Center 3105 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley @ Woolsey
An exciting evening of stimulating film and discussion about the problems with the current centralized monetary system and new currency solutions proposed in the Bay Area and beyond. Sponsored by the Open Money Foundation, Bay Area Community Exchange, and Sovereign Carbon Community Bank.
Money is at the intersection of nearly every aspect of modern life. Most of us take the monetary system for granted, but it has a profound and largely misunderstood influence on our lives. THE MONEY FIX is a feature-length documentary exploring our society’s relationship with the almighty dollar. THE MONEY FIX examines economic patterning in both the human and the natural worlds, and through this lens we learn how we can empower ourselves by redesigning the lifeblood of the economy at the community level. The film documents three types of alternative money systems, all of which help solve economic problems for the communities in which they operate.. This film will utterly transform the way you perceive money and economics. For more info. contact

July 31 is No Spectators Day as officially recognized in San Francisco
by Mayoral Proclamation. We kid you not! True, and we're darned
proud! So ... how will you celebrate?
In San Francisco, meet at Dolores park on Friday 7/31 from 5pm to 8pm
for a park cleanup (we'll have trash-bags and MOOP-sticks); then head
over to Kilowatt (3160 16th St at Guerrero St., SF.) for cocktails and
If you live somewhere else, why not organize your own local effort?!
Let your imaginations run amok in the very best of ways. On July 31st
everyone is a Participant! We are encouraging EVERYONE to personally
embody the spirit of No Spectators Day through acts of self-
expression, civic participation, and gifting -- and to make a full
weekend of it! Here are some ideas ...
10 Suggested Things To Do for No Spectators Day/Weekend
1. Commit random acts of kindness and gifting!
2. Adopt-your-block, beach or nearby park - do a neighborhood
cleanup, and involve your neighbors. While you're at it, strike up a
game of sockpuppet croquet!
3. Make public art: Make some art and take it to the streets (but
Leave No Trace)
4. Dress expressively: Create your own Art-Parade – why save that
fairy-turnip princess costume just for the playa?
5. Going away this weekend? Then pack your bags! ... your trash &
recycling bags that is, and take LNT on the road with you! While
you're at it, learn more about the Burning Man Regional Network:
and get involved in other cities!
6. Volunteer for an Arts non-profit – like BRAF
7. Create an art car or bike and go for a ride!
8. Get involved with a Burning Man Art-project – see these links for
artist needs and
9. Engage in acts of civic participation – Burners Without Borders
and Black Rock Solar ( have some ideas. Or
you may wish to volunteer at a local school, senior center or food
bank, to name a few...
10. Instead of a garage or sidewalk-sale, have an Un-Sale or "Gift-
Away," where you give items away for FREE. That's right ... stand
around like you're having a sale — and surprise people by GIFTING it
all, instead.
Remember, it's No Spectators Day! ... Just Another Day of Burner
Public Participation thru Artistic Creation! Enjoy NOT spectating!

Every Last Friday 5:30pm Justin Herman Plaza Market @ Embarcadero
Bring: Bike, Helmet, costume, snacks, Fliers to share with friends. Last working Friday of EVERY MONTH.
Join our naked contingent as there is no law against being naked in San Francisco.
According to the office of the SF DA: "There is no law against being naked in San Francisco unless
you are lewd or blocking traffic."
Let's break this down: What she meant:
LEWD: A) if you are fully clothed but exposing your wee bits: that is LEWD.
B) if you are manipulating your wee bits with your hands or other implements in public, that is LEWD.
the idea is: DON'T BLOCK TRAFFIC. This is good advice for Critical Mass in General: RIDE, be happy, be seen, be on your merry way.
PARKS: It is illegal to be naked in parks in SF. There are children in parks. Likely this law is based on fear of pedophiles or predators.
In MY OPINION Critical Mass and Bay to Breakers are unique and advantageous opportunities for nude activism as:
We are part of a large festive flowing body of fun: a parade, a bike ride. This is less threatening in general and cast in a good light.
Please be careful, should you ever be in a parade or bike ride that BottleNecks or pinches near a restaurant or cafe where families / or children are seated or stationary...
DO NOT approach children or force them to view your natural bits as I fear this could test the law. Common sense, yes?
Please discuss amongst yourselves by joining our local email group: by sending a blank email to:
SF_WNBR-subscribe [at]

Have you ever thought about going through the streets of San Francisco (not with Karl Malden and Michael Douglas) nude, not having to worry about the police?
As many people know, walking nude across the entire city during Bay To Breakers is possible. Many people though may not be aware that bicycling through the city while nude is also possible, void of police action. How is that? It comes down to the simple concept of "power in numbers."
A few riders from the annual World Naked Bike Ride also participate in San Francisco's monthly Critical Mass. In both events, because of the size of the groups the police do not stop any riders because of nudity. For instance, during World Naked Bike Ride, instead of our group of approximately 60 - 70 being stopped by SFPD, in a few areas (e.g. Columbus Ave., Montgomery St., Market St.) we were given unexpected but much appreciated police escorts.
So anyhoos...though we comprise a very small minority within the Critical Mass mass, we are still a hearty and enthusiastic bunch and are hoping to enlarge our group. We are not necessarily seeking only those who are political activists and whose sole intent with Critical Mass is to protest automobile use and gas consumption. We are also very social, friendly and nice people who enjoy the exhilaration of being able to ride our bicycles through the streets of San Francisco (again, without Karl Malden and Michael Douglas) while being naked (well, maybe not totally naked...I, for example, had on a helmut, gloves, socks, shoes and a backpack) and would love to have other like-minded people (both male and female) ride with us.
If this sounds intriguing, interesting and just plain fun, please reply and I can give you more information. The next Critical Mass will be July 31 and, as always, meets at Justin Herman Plaza.

July 31, 2009 All tickets purchased online after July 31st WILL NOT BE MAILED and are WILL CALL, to be picked up at the Box Office located at the front gate of Black Rock City. You will need to show your photo ID and have a confirmation number to pick up your tickets.
