Helen Wheels and Tina were posting about a film called "Loose Change, edition 2. I'd never heard of the film, so I googled it.
It is a documentary looking at a conspiracy theory surrounding 9/11/01. They offer a free DVD to anyone who lost family or friends, which you must documents.
I lost a friend, Laura Lee Morabito, who was one of the sweetest, nicest people I've ever known. She was my sales rep from Qantas when I was in the Chicago area. When she moved to Boston with her husband, we were all so sad to lose her. But she mentored me and encouraged me to move from Chicago to Los Angeles. I saw her in August, 2001, right after I'd moved. It was at our Aussie Specialists Corroboree. She was part of the "Qantelles", a singing group made up of the sales reps, who entertained us in silly costumes, singing the praises of the airline. She and I caught up, chatted about all kinds of stuff -- and at the end of the weekend, said "see you in September" -- she was coming back to Los Angeles on Sept. 11, for a sales meeting.
I ordered the DVD from the Loose Change website. The website alone makes me sick with rage; if 1/10th of what they are saying is indeed true, then this administration did more than simply allow the attacks to happen. There is a screening on June 21st, 7:00 PM, The Art Theater 4th + Cherry, Long Beach, California. Free Admission, Q&A Session. Not sure if I will make the screening, I have a committment on Wednesday from 6 - 7, so if I can get out of it, I will be there. If what they say is true, then we are in more trouble than any of us can imagine. If what they are doing is to raise questions, I applaud them for that. If what they say is true, I fear for their lives. Because an administration that is capable of attacking its own nation is certainly capable of "disappearing" three young filmmakers.
