The crowd is enormous and there were processions in the streets.

Gaddafi spoke for a long time and a woman just finished speaking in English. The woman said that Hillary Clinton lied. 

Where Did the Towers Go?

I am now the extremely proud owner of Judy Wood's book, Where Did the Towers Go?

Although I think that everything in the book is available on Wood's website, the book is much eaiser for me to navigate.
