5;46 AM
WTC Memorial 
Join us in NYC near the WTC Memorial for a remembrance honoring those lost in the 9/11 attacks. We'll gather beginning at 5am SLT (8am Eastern) and will begin a reading of all 2974 names at 5:46am SLT (8:46am Eastern), the time the first plane struck the World Trade Center. It will be played over the music channel and will take about 3 1/2 hours to complete. We also will be dedicating a new FDNY Memorial.  Later, at 3pm SLT, we will hold a somber, Formal dance. Please join us, and Never Forget.

All Day
911 Memorial at Wellstone's Donkey
I'll be airing both audio and a number of video versions Ani Difranco's "Self Evident" and readings of the Constitution in a loop. This is not a celebration, it is a wake, a time to remember all those who were murdered and to mourn the death of our most basic values, things like privacy, habeas corpus, and an abhorrence of torture. Many people call 911 a defining moment in American history. They pound their chest, shouting about how it was the day when we finally confronted the evil of "Islamofascism." While they are certainly right about it being a defining moment, they fail to see that it is defined by our own evil, our willingness to shred our constitution and accept, no demand, the theft of our republic by authoritarian plutocrats.
It's not a day for the ignorant patriotism of the flag. It's a day of mourning where the red, white, and blue should be set aside for grief-stricken black. it's a day when the Constitution should be remembered for what it was, and what it hopefully can be, again. Most of all, it is a day when we should all pledge our lives to righting the great injustice that has been done to our country and begin doing all we can to make it something for which we can take pride, once again.

Dancing Liberally - Woodstock Nation
OK, errant Pirate Days and Witchy's, and Rocky's birthdays threw us off schedule. I promised you hippies and by God you're going to het hippies--dirty, fucking or otherwise--30 or so years and about a month after the original Woodstock. So break out the tie dye and paisley and lets kick up our Birkenstocks for a night of peace, love, and understanding. There's nothing wrong with that, dammit. DJ Rocky the Yakdyer will be spinning the bytes and we'll be giving lindens out to those who best personify the hippy ethos. But please, please don't buy any brown acid from Dick! Cheney. It will turn you into a bitter, hate-fueled old man or Joe Lieberman, which, come to think of it, is the same thing but with an extra dash of impotence.
