Come What May

Happy May Day, workers of the world! Here's a bit of agit-prop to add to the mix: a poster for my upcoming appearance at Revolutionary Grounds. If you click on or download the image, it should show up large enough to reproduce on an 8.5 x 11 sheet.

I have been gradually updating the "Sources" page for The CIA's Greatest Hits, adding a few more links every day or so. The most recent updates are on the Congo, Jonestown, and the Plame Affair. Today a story on CNN caught my eye, regarding a witness to the RFK assassination. She insists she heard a second gunman, and that the LAPD had suppressed her testimony. I will continue to add links on this and other chapters in the days ahead.

Let me know if there's bookstore or radio station near you that would like to host an event spotlighting the dark underbelly of our country's history. And keep on fighting the good fight.
