Who Really Bombed Judi Bari?

 

Who’s Bombing Her Now?

 

By Bruce Anderson
Anderson Valley Advertiser

 

Most AVA readers are probably aware, however dimly, that a woman named Judi Bari was nearly killed in Oakland by a car bomb in May of 1990.  The device detonated directly beneath the driver’s seat of the car
Bari was driving.

The person with her, Darryl Cherney, her close friend and fellow Earth First! organizer, was only slightly injured. Both Bari and Cherney would have been killed if the bomb had exploded as designed.  A resident of Mendocino County and self-identified Earth First!er, Bari had been foremost in organizing Redwood Summer, a mass protest against corporate timber’s cash-in of the Northcoast’s redwood forests.

The spectacular attempt on Bari’s life was soon eclipsed by the first Iraq war, and Bari, grievously injured in the explosion, died in 1997.

bariThe FBI and the Oakland Police had prematurely arrested Bari and Cherney on the presumption they had knowingly transported the device that almost killed them.  In the few years left to her, Bari, and a handful of acolytes, including Cherney, raised large amounts of money for a winning federal libel lawsuit against the FBI and the Oakland Police Department in 2002.  Bari’s daughters, Cherney and several left attorneys walked away with several million dollars, having worked closely with the feds to draft the suit to exclude all mention of whose bomb set the suit in motion.

Within days of the blast, Mike Geniella, a reporter with the New York Times-owned Santa Rosa Press Democrat, had received a letter from a person signing himself The Lord’s Avenger.  Written in thunderous, faux Old Testament prose, the Avenger described the bomb in detail only the bomber could know.  The bombing suspect now became a deranged fundamentalist, and the FBI, always a dependable villain among the left, became the Avenger’s enabler if not co-conspirator.

Bari, Cherney, and their allies well-placed in the Pacifica Network, including Amy Goodman at Democracy Now, have always managed to ignore inconvenient questions about the bombing, especially those raised in a fine but mostly unseen documentary on the case by Steve Talbot, who went on to anchor PBS’s Frontline series.

bari2Talbot’s film was called “Who Bombed Judi Bari?” Talbot answered that question on information supplied by Bari herself — Judi Bari was probably bombed by her ex-husband.  Talbot, without directly identifying Bari’s ex in the film, pointed straight at him.

But after Bari’s death, Talbot appeared on a San Francisco-based television program called “This Week In Northern California” to say that Bari had told him she was certain her ex-husband had bombed her, that the great assassins of the corporate-FBI nexus so beloved by the Pacifica Network had to be moved aside for what was really a fancy case of domestic violence.

Bari’s ex-husband, Mike Sweeney, magically kept off stage all these years as the likeliest suspect, is not the usual estranged husband.  He comes with special qualifications.  He belonged to Professor H. Bruce Franklin’s Maoist posse at Stanford in the late 1960s, and he and Bari met at a labor organizing event, married and moved to Santa Rosa where a hangar on the mostly abandoned airfield next door mysteriously blew up one night prior to their relocation to Redwood Valley in Mendocino County.  The airfield was home to weekend pilots who annoyed the Sweeney-Bari household with their overflights, and Sweeney and Bari had successfully sued Hewlett-Packard to halt development of the tract the airfield rested on.

Police suspected Sweeney and Bari — they had no other suspects — but were unable to make the case against them.  By the time they arrived in Mendocino County where their marriage soon disintegrated, the two radicals had enjoyed, you might say, a uniquely explosive relationship.

bari4In the 22 years since Judi Bari was blown up in Oakland, out there in what’s left of the American left, it’s an article of faith that she was a martyr to the usual malign forces that do the dirty work for our ruling circles.  Tune in Democracy Now or KPFA out of Berkeley and you will hear someone saying that the author of the attack on Judi Bari remains a mystery but we, wink-wink, we in the know, we know the corporations and the FBI got her.

What you won’t hear, because alternative explanations of the case are deliberately excluded from Pacifica’s preciously PC airwaves, is that the mystery of who bombed Judi Bari isn’t a mystery at all, that it can be solved via the known DNA lifted from the Lord’s Avenger Letter.  No one seems interested, but that DNA exists and has been found to be primarily female, placed there in 1990, just before DNA became the slam-dunk investigative tool it has since become.

bari3Judi Bari is still being bombed by persons deliberately obstructing resolution of the case, this time in the form of an hagiographic epic assembled by Cherney that mostly features himself.  It is also called, “Who Bombed Judi Bari?”, a nice piece of cynicism that might make it appear that the honest film of the same title by Steve Talbot didn’t pre-date Cherney’s film by twenty-one years.  Predictably, Cherney’s version of “Who Bombed Judi Bari?” has gotten big play from Amy Goodman and the cringing speakers-of-truth-to-power at places like KPFA.

 

bari5The even larger mystery of Who Bombed Judi Bari is this: why isn’t what passes for a left media in this country demanding that the Bari case be solved?  Why did Susan Faludi suddenly abandon her book on Bari after getting a large publisher’s advance to write it?  Why has Judi Bari’s famous sister, Gina Kolata of the New York Times, never written about her sister’s sad fate?

And why has Bari’s family never publicly demanded the case be solved?

avaWe welcome this case being reopened and the DNA evidence tested.  It has never been solved or fully resolved.

We also welcome dissenting opinions.

Should Mr. Cherney, Mr. Sweeney, Ms. Goodman, Mr. Talbot, Ms. Kolata, or any accurate historian with a direct and knowledgeable command of the facts like to respond or rebut to the above, the Humboldt Sentinel gladly looks forward to hearing it.

  1. Well, I’m glad the Humboldt Sentinel “welcomes” us to respond to its Cointelpro special edition by Bruce Anderson, self-proclaimed aider, abettor, and apologist for the FBI. The fact is that Bruce Anderson has not attempted to see the movie nor interview the people he accuses of a never-ending litany of wrongdoings. Of course, I would be reluctant to be interviewed because Bruce has a long, sordid history of making up interviews and/or statements within interviews–even altering letters to the editor! So how can one be sure one’s interview or even letter be printed accurately by the man known by many as the “Bully of Booneville.” Bruce is a well-established, deliberate liar discernible to all with but a cursory glance.

    The history and corrections needed are so sordid and lengthy, that Bruce counts on the reader glazing over at any rebuttal. In 1990 Bruce told the FBI that he thought one of his staff writers, Mike Koepf, was the bomber. In the mid nineteen nineties, he wrote a long piece about how Irv Sutley, the primary source for his faux-theory, was an agent and a suspect. In fact, Sutley family DNA appears on both a death threat and a police informant letter, though Bruce lies in another article and states the DNA belongs to Judi’s ex-husband. He wrote and article about Ms. Bari 3 weeks after she was bombed entitled: ‘Traction Sex” in which he fantasized having relations with Ms. Bari immediately following the bombing. This is not a stable, honest or consistent man we’re talking about here. After literally hundreds of thousands of words written by Bruce on the subject in his paper for the last 18 years, it is literally (and literally literally) impossible to keep up with Bruce’s ever shifting sands of prevarication.

    So let’s take a ride down Bruce’s Fantasy Lane on the Badjacket Express and talk about Bruce’s lies in this here hit piece #1038. I might have missed some of these 1000 to 3000 word missives, but this is Bruce’s cottage industry. Let’s investigate how this qualifies as “Independent Media” as opposed to being a well-place Counter-intelligence piece of disinformation. Some of the untruths are from plain ignorance; others are blatant lies, conjured by Bruce to satisfy his inner demons of his pathological lying compulsion that has haunted him, according to his brother, since he was a boy. To quote Bruce’s dad: “You know it’s funny, but Bruce would rather lie than tell the truth.”

    Oh, and let me, in advance provide Bruce’s response to all of this: Either: 1) I’m just a liar, with no evidence presented or even a list of the lies or 2) Bruce will invent new lies to keep the “conversation going. It’s rare that I respond to this charlatan, so read on if you really the accurate side of the story. And trust me, the truth is not found by averaging out both “sides, “ if one is a complete fabrication. Bruce is here to muddy the issue, cover the tracks of the bomber for the government agency he loves to defend—the FBI, and to sell papers.

    Remember, Bruce constantly laments that there is no left, no real left, no honest debate. Never forget he is talking about himself. Forgive typos and grammatical errors. I don’t have the time for this, really. But nevertheless, here we go:

    Non-truth #1: “Both Bari and Cherney would have been killed if the bomb had exploded as designed.”

    Truth: The bomb did, in fact, explode as designed. Three videotaped, simulated tests by the FBI proved this. If Bruce had watched the movie or attended a single day of the trial, he would know this. Not the most important correction, but I’m taking them in order.

    Non-truth #2: “The FBI and the Oakland Police had prematurely arrested Bari and Cherney on the presumption they had knowingly transported the device that almost killed them.”

    Truth: The authorities arrested us deliberately in attempt to silence us, a violation of freedom of speech–there was nothing “premature” about it. They showed up within 5 to 20 minutes and proclaimed us guilty. This was proven in a court of law after an exhaustive trial in 2002 that took 12 years of research and motions to bring to court. Bruce’s selection of the word “premature” implies that we should/could have been rightfully arrested later.

    Non-truths #3 & 4: “In the few years left to her, Bari, and a handful of acolytes, including Cherney, raised large amounts of money for a winning federal libel lawsuit against the FBI and the Oakland Police Department in 2002. Bari’s daughters, Cherney and several left attorneys walked away with several million dollars, having worked closely with the feds to draft the suit to exclude all mention of whose bomb set the suit in motion.”

    Truth: The lawsuit did everything within it’s legal civic trial power to solve the bombing case, and it did, in fact, turn up Bruce’s BFF Irv Sutley as having family DNA on two key pieces of evidence. DNA we got from the stamp and envelope on the letter taking credit for the bombing was that of an unknown female–certainly not the ex-husband. An unusable trace amount of DNA on the letter was male, attributed to the postman or reporter who received it. No one walked away with a million dollars. Four million dollars divided after 40% attorneys fees (after 12 years), income taxes, Judi splitting her money three ways (2 daughters and a non-profit), comes out to net just over half a million for myself, less for all the lawyers, and Judi’s $1.8 million (gross) shared. No one became a millionaire or even close.

    Non-truth #5: “…the FBI, always a dependable villain among the left…”

    Truth: Bruce continues his apologies and excuses for the FBI, knowing full well that the FBI actually really is a “dependable villain among the left.” His sarcastic and caustic use of this phrase is disingenuous, as the FBI’s long history of going after labor unions, civil rights leaders, anti-war protestors, environmentalists, etc. is not only well documented, but pretty much its raison-d’être… and a damned good reason to look at the role the FBI played in the bombing of Judi and myself. Facilitating such incidents is what they do and have done for nearly 100 years of documented history (see Congressional Record).

    Non-truth #6: “Talbot appeared on a San Francisco-based television program called “This Week In Northern California” to say that Bari had told him she was certain her ex-husband had bombed her…”

    Truth: I have this clip and Talbot says no such thing. In fact, Judi did consider her husband to be a suspect and then, before 1990 was over and after much research/investigation, determined he was not. She was never “certain” about anyone. However, Talbot’s documentary determined the most likely suspect was the source of this disinformation campaign in the first place: Irv Sutley, who clearly helped write a police informant letter (DNA and typewriter evidence) that came with a photo of Judi with Sutley’s Uzi (taken presumably as a joke album cover) that only Sutley, myself (Sutley sent me three photos) and his landlady (Judi’s close friend) had access to. Sutley admitted rummaging through the photos and sending one (a photo of Judi with Sutley’s Uzi) to Bruce Anderson, who published it.

    Sutley is a 4 decade-long Peace and Freedom Party member and well documented disrupter (narked on two party members and had them convicted of using an out of district address), gun enthusiast, 8=year Marine veteran in the 60′s who never went to Viet Nam, a physical abuser of at least one woman according to the Press Democrat (a Peace and Freedom Party Candidate), writer of many menacing letters, a known police informant, a candidate for Sheriff, a Communist Party member, and a guy in his 60′s with no known street address for longer than a few months. The latter tidbit is particularly interesting as Sutley runs for office regularly and one is required to provide a street address to run. Sutley got an “exemption” because he claimed, as the Sonoma County elections office told me, he feared the “Troskyites” were out to kill him. He achieved national prominence for legally challenging and removing the star and angels off the Sonoma County Courthouse Christmas tree in 2010, becoming Fox News’ and the New York Times’ face of “The War Against Christmas.” This is one of Bruce’s primary sources of information.

    Untruth #7: “He belonged to Professor H. Bruce Franklin’s Maoist posse at Stanford in the late 1960s.”

    Truth: Please provide evidence of this, not that it matters.

    Untruth #8:”[Sweeney] and Bari met at a labor organizing event, married and moved to Santa Rosa where a hangar on the mostly abandoned airfield next door mysteriously blew up one night… The airfield was home to weekend pilots who annoyed the Sweeney-Bari household with their overflights… Police suspected Sweeney and Bari — they had no other suspects.”

    Truth #9: Police never questioned Bari or Sweeney about the airport arson, strange if they were the “only suspects.” But more importantly, this illogical accusation goes to the heart of Bruce’s accusation: because Mike Sweeney, Judi’s ex, is an alleged suspect in an act of sabotage in defense of his neighborhood (albeit pretty radical sabotage in the form of arson), he is therefore both technically and mentally capable of murder. Well by that logic, anyone who ever wired his or her own home or got in a fist fight (like Bruce has more than once–understandably–with the subjects of his vitriolic writing) could be a suspect. The fact is that Judi’s ex didn’t have the opportunity to put the bomb in the car given the nature of its timing devise. The theory that the timer malfunctioned for 48 hours is not likely. And even if Sweeney had bombed Judi Bari, one has to go through the giant leap of logic that he has the entire FBI and Oakland Police force at his back to arrest his victim on site. Bruce has explained this by stating that Sweeney was an FBI informant–thereby going completely counter to his own meanderings. If Sweeney worked for or with the FBI then the FBI was behind the bombing. Further, Sweeney didn’t have a motive, at least not to the degree the timber industry did with Judi Bari unionizing and organizing against it en masse. Sutley and Anderson would have us believe that Judi was trying to kill her ex by hiring Sutley through a third party as a hit man and so therefore Sweeney tried to kill her first, as opposed to turning her into the cops. Judi did joke once about killing her ex, which she readily admitted. Further, if there is any evidence on anyone in this case, I urge people to take it to a law enforcement agency with jurisdiction–they are the ones to handle dangerous people and illegal matters, presumably.

    Non-truth #10: “… it can be solved via the known DNA lifted from the Lord’s Avenger Letter. No one seems interested, but that DNA exists and has been found to be primarily female, placed there in 1990, just before DNA became the slam-dunk investigative tool it has since become.

    Truth: Well it was yours truly who organized and ascertained that DNA Bruce claims we are not interested in. And the FBI and Oakland Police were completely disinterested. We, however are very interested. We are currently in a suit with the FBI to test one of the two bombs (yes, the bomber made two) and the first bomb, which partially detonated at an L-P sawmill, contains about 8 feet of duct tape which could contain hair samples, skin flakes, fingerprints, etc. Bruce has publicly come out against such testing, stating that we don’t need to do it to find out who the bomber is, as he states above. So Bruce doesn’t want to test the bomber’s DNA on the bomb itself. That speaks volumes.

    Untruth #11: It [our movie] is also called, “Who Bombed Judi Bari?” a nice piece of cynicism that might make it appear that the honest film of the same title by Steve Talbot didn’t pre-date Cherney’s film by twenty-one years.

    Truth: Who Bombed Judi Bari? Is a song I wrote in July 1990 that predated Talbot’s documentary for PBS by almost a year. Talbot used the name of my copyrighted song, which I sang in his piece, for the title of his doc. I own that title and gave an audio CD I produced of Judi’s speeches in 1997 the same name. In other words, the first person to come up with that name and most importantly, to ask that question loudly, is me.

    Untruth #12: “The even larger mystery of Who Bombed Judi Bari is this: why isn’t what passes for a left media in this country demanding that the Bari case be solved? Why did Susan Faludi suddenly abandon her book on Bari after getting a large publisher’s advance to write it? Why has Judi Bari’s famous sister, Gina Kolata of the New York Times, never written about her sister’s sad fate? And why has Bari’s family never publicly demanded the case be solved?”

    Truth: I have sent out hundreds of press releases to the left media and gotten less response than from the mainstream media by a lot. I’d suggest that Bruce call the left press and ask them this question. Judi’s famous sister, Gina Kolata, didn’t write about it for the NY Times because she is a science writer and wouldn’t be allowed to write about a family matter if she wanted to. Again, he should ask her. Further, Kolata is a right wing apologist for Dow Chemical and many toxic corporations and didn’t speak to Judi for years. As far as Faludi’s book not being finished, that is a question I’ve asked Susan many times and in turn gotten many poor responses. As for the “family,” where should a family turn for answers? Her parents are dead, she didn’t along with her sisters, and even so, how would this proclaiming be made. Bruce, in classic paranoid conspiratorial fashion implies the whole family is in on it, along with author Faludi, myself, the entire legal team, etc. And what does any of this have to do with hard evidence?

    Conclusion

    We have a pretty good idea of who Bombed Judi Bari? It was a plan engineered by L-P and the FBI made while they were blowing up cars at bomb school in Eureka 30 days before the bombing on an L-P clearcut. The L-P sawmill was bombed 2 weeks after that and two weeks after that Judi’s car was bombed on May 24, 1990. The head of the FBI’s SF division was a long time Hoover Cointelpro political operative, Richard W. Held. The bomber, probably a low-level snitch/asset—no one we know–the typical M.O. for the FBI. One doesn’t need to twist oneself into an ugly pretzel, as Bruce has done ad nauseum, to see where the evidence leads.

    I have one question for Bruce Anderson: if we find DNA on the bomb that is not Mike Sweeney’s and further find out who the actual bomber is, would you, Bruce, plan any restitution to the near two decades of accusations against Sweeney? An apology? Giving up your “writing” career? Because after 18 years of false stories and accusations, and with the genuine possibility we might still learn the truth with the latest round of DNA testing, Mr. Anderson should begin thinking about eating that huge serving of crow he’s been cooking up for himself.

    Thanks Bruce Anderson for your efforts .Darryl and judy should have never got one red cent for there dreamed up fantasy .The whole thing was turned around and used for propaganda by the environmental extremists. Who only care about there agenda over the truth .

  3. One doesn’t have to be a particularly close reader to see that Cherney, as always, simply vilifies persons who don’t buy the nonsense he’s parlayed into a handsome living for himself going on 23 years now. He and his allies could have obtained bomb fragments years ago to test its dna. Why now? And why not demand that either the FBI or the Mendocino County DA subpoena dna from likely perps — maybe a dozen persons — to match against the known dna from the famous Lord’s Avenger Letter, essentially a confession written soon after the bombing. Also please note that Cherney fails to mention Steve Talbot’s appearance on This Week In California where Talbot stated that Bari told him she was certain her ex-husband had bombed her. Cherney’s unhinged and highly debatable remarks above of course don’t mention the extraordinary lengths he and his financially self-interested allies have gone to to shut down dissent on the case, going so far as to call bookstores prior to my appearances to urge them to withdraw their invitations. These people have raised thousands of dollars, won a federal lawsuit worth several million more all on their promise to do something for the environment. The money went to Cherney, Bari’s two already wealthy daughters and a few so-called “movement” lawyers. I’m grateful to the Sentinel for reprinting my story on this ongoing swindle.

    • “One doesn’t have to be a particularly close reader to see that Anderson, as always, simply vilifies persons who don’t buy the nonsense he’s parlayed into a handsome living for himself going for decades now.”

      … See all you have to do is switch the name of the person Anderson is trashing with Bruce’s name and it fits for Bruce perfectly.

      Fact is, as I predicted, that Bruce didn’t and can’t refute any of the lies I busted him on. And Bruce is the King of Vilifiers, so go figure.

      And as I also corrected predicted, he layers the thoughtful rebuttal to him with more lies. And yes, Bruce knows he is lying, just like we proved the FBI was lying and not mistaken. Here are some new whoppers.

      “He [Cherney] and his allies could have obtained bomb fragments years ago to test its dna. Why now? And why not demand that either the FBI or the Mendocino County DA subpoena dna from likely perps — maybe a dozen persons — to match against the known dna from the famous Lord’s Avenger Letter, essentially a confession written soon after the bombing.”

      Actually, we did try to test the bomb fragments and the FBI and te court shut it down after we got results from the first round. They refused to hand anything else over. Why now, Bruce well knows since I’ve written about it extensively: We are demanding it now because the FBI and OPD agreed to turn over evidence to us once they were done with it. In 2010 the FBI announced to us they would destroy the evidence (and not give it to us). So we took ‘em to court and won the right to have it tested. And why did they agree? Because we took less money than we were awarded in exchange for getting the right to eventually test the evidence. It’s amazing how Bruce can take completely logical series’s of events–like a bomb victim wants to know who bombed him and his partner–and turn it into a decades long series of attacks on the victims. Oh, I thought that was supposed to be the FBI who did that? Well, Bruce, answer this: do you remain in contact with the FBI? Do they pay you do to this or are you just a cheap date?

      New Lie #2 “Also please note that Cherney fails to mention Steve Talbot’s appearance on This Week In California where Talbot stated that Bari told him she was certain her ex-husband had bombed her.”

      Truth: I did address it, but Bruce obviously was reading a bit too fast or maybe he just wanted to see how much he could lie, even in the face of the truth being right there–kinda like the FBI does. Talbot said no such thing and Judi said no such thing to him, but I have the video if anyone wants to see it. I was at the meetings with Talbot and Judi Bari and Judi did want her husband looked at, which makes this whole story of a coverup that much more inane. But as I said, she found he didn’t have the opportunity to have done it.

      Lie #3: “Cherney’s unhinged and highly debatable remarks above of course don’t mention the extraordinary lengths he and his financially self-interested allies have gone to to shut down dissent on the case, going so far as to call bookstores prior to my appearances to urge them to withdraw their invitations.”

      Truth: Bruce doesn’t engage in honest debate so even though he calls my remarks highly debatable, he doesn’t debate them. That’s because I am speaking the truth and Bruce is lying. And in classic Bruce form, he calls my carefully laid our response “unhinged.” I’m looking for the unhinged part, but the only hinge I see missing the the one that connects Bruce to reality. I never called a bookstore nor do I know anyone who has and asked them to withdraw invitations. But that is perfectly with the right of any American to do. And what did happen at many of Bruce’s appearances is that protests occurred–which Bruce prefers not to mention. People protested his Cointelpro activities, as well they should. But I had nothing to do with them and suggested that others just ignore the Bully of Booneville.

      By the way, we’re showing the movie in Booneville on Sat. March 16. I wonder if Bruce will actually attend the movie he constantly criticizes but has never seen. Hint: He’s not getting in for free.

      • groovy says:

        It’s fun to see Cherney on the defensive here. I really appreciate Bruce Andersons’ courage standing up to these eco-terrorists.

        • I annotated Cherney’s hysterical, in both senses, response on the ava’s website at theava.com I won’t wear out Sentinel readers with a lot of back and forth with this hustler, the gist of which is, and would be, that he and a small group of crooks continue to live off false versions of the Bari bombing and have always blocked or attempted to block honest investigations. They’ll all be in Boonville in March, as will I.

          • Tracy says:

            Thank you for this article. When the bombing happened, all the evidence was there. My then-boyfriend and I said to each other…”ex-husband did it”… and our far left friends screamed “NNOOO! Its the MAN trying to keep the truth from the people…” etc. The problem with the entire thing is that these were small time jerks wanting to get on the ‘A’ list of domestic trouble makers. ie: weather underground, PLO, type wanna-be’s. As for Cherney, he has nothing to offer the world, his “cause”, his community, but weird paranoia and BS. I couldn’t read more than a sentence or two of his response, simply because, ‘I think he doth protest too much’. The more he prattles on, the more I think he was a part of the plan, Murder-suicide for the cause, man. Hmmmmm?

  4. skippy says:

    Thank you, everyone, and to Mr. Cherney and Mr. Anderson for kindly offering their time and responding with their fair and complete viewpoints for the record, which we and readers appreciate.

    There’s more than two sides to every issue; there’s usually multiple sides. We like hearing all of them for the sake of consideration and discussion. The Sentinel’s Mission Statement is simply “Independent Media By and For the People of Humboldt County.”

    Readers may decide the issue for themselves given that both sides have weighed in and responded thoroughly.

    We’d also like to say that this has also been one of the most thought-provoking and lively discussion threads that we’ve had in quite some time, too.

  5. Steve Lewis says:

    As another victim of Darryl Cherney’s public lying to attack others he considers enemies to his cause (himself) I suggest Darryl take a lie detector test in front of his critics on his role in the bombing and his knowledge of who did it. I want to see what a lie detector test shows even knowing they are not fully accurate and can be beat and are not admissible in court. Still, I want to see Darryl take one as this issue has gone on long enough that it needs to be cleared. People making money off of tragedy is not a good thing.

    I don’t drop a ton of comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here Who Really Bombed Judi Bari? | Humboldt Sentinel. And I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Could it be just me or does it look like some of these remarks appear as if they are coming from brain
    dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.

    Could you list of the complete urls of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

    Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
