As part of a worldwide effort to commemorate the first anniversary of Barry Jennings' mysterious death, a few of us here in Dallas headed downtown to the steps of the Dallas Morning News. We displayed our signs to the passers by and got the attention of the people inside the building. We were greeted by security, who were cordial and respectful. We were later met by an editor of the paper who interviewed a couple of us. He was friendly and respectful. We gave him a DVD compilation of all the pertinent Barry Jennings information and urged him to get a reporter to review it. We were told that they concentrate on local stories, especially since there have been layoffs there at the paper. I think this was code for "don't expect any ink on this subject." We will see, but I am not holding my breath.

FRIDAY, June 13 (HealthDay News) -- Two to three years after the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, one in eight residents who lived near the site had signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a New York City Health Department study reports.
This rate, 12.6 percent, among Lower Manhattan residents is three times the usual rate and matches the 12.4 percent rate reported among rescue and recovery workers. Residents who were injured during the attacks had the highest rate of PTSD symptoms (38 percent), followed by those who witnessed violent deaths and those caught in the dust cloud after the towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001.
The most commonly reported PTSD symptoms were hyper-vigilance, nightmares and emotional reactions to reminders of 9/11.
The study, based on surveys of 11,000 residents through the World Trade Center Health Registry, also found that divorced people reported PTSD symptoms at twice the rate of married people (21.5 percent vs. 9.5 percent), possibly because divorced people received less emotional support, the researchers suggested.
There is NO excuse to threaten, harass or attack 911 family members or 911 witnesses in the name of "research" or "patriotism"
This is how it is from here on out: anyone acting like a threat to family members, 911 witnesses or activists will be treated as such.
Want to make death threats? Fine we'll take you dead seriously and take steps accordingly.
Want to harass and threaten people? Fine, we'll report it to the appropriate authorities accordingly.
Want to make attempts to invade the privacy of 911 witnesses, family members and activists? Fine we'll document it and report it accordingly.
And our first example will be our Troy from West Virginia.
