Sherry Clark arrived for breakfast with an armload of DVDs whose messages cast the shadow of skepticism over the official line on the 9/11 attack.

Through forkfuls of pancakes, the Delaware, Ohio, woman conjured up images of shrouded schemes and dark lurkings, government complicity and war-industry profiteering.

A lunchbox purse sported a get-the-truthout sticker. A lapel button noted that polite women seldom make history.

In Dallas, the black presidential limo turned toward Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository as JFK drifted into the cross hairs of a rifle sight.
