(I sent this to the Rocky Mountain News Letters to the Editor today. So far no word on if it will be published.)

This Friday night at The Tattered Cover in LoDo, Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth will present scientific evidence proving beyond reasonable doubt that the World Trade Center towers and World Trade Building 7 were demolished by conventional and novel forms of controlled demolition. He invites the best and most skeptical minds in the metro area to be there and to show him any errors of logic or reason. He will not be entertaining conjecture or conspiracy theories, but focusing on the hard scientific evidence. Many have refused to look for myriad reasons, but as the great Sherlock Holmes said: ". . .when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." Gage has eliminated the impossible. Which leaves us with some very bitter pills to swallow.

It is surreal and sad to me that Reason and Science are being treated like heresy these days. If Gage's research is flawed, and the almost 700 architects and engineers in AE911Truth are wrong as well, then this will be determined only by rational scrutiny. What does it say about us citizens, who cannot bring ourselves to examine what is arguably the greatest deception ever perpetrated on us, and then the world?
We were never guaranteed our freedoms by those who envisioned them over 230 years ago. They were earned through defiance of oppression and a resplendent moral resolve which laid the foundation for the greatest nation in history. Our freedoms, to peaceably assemble for the redress of grievances, to speak the truth as we see it, to be protected from unreasonable search and seizure and more are in the hazard: Richard Cheney has repeatedly thrown gasoline onto the furnace of fear in an attempt to frighten us into silence. Our greatest recourse is reason. But we must use it. Now.
