Rena Patty stopped in Erie on Oct. 10 as she cycles 4,000 miles east across the United States to bring attention to an organization that is calling for a new investigation into the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. Patty, 50, of San Juan Islands, Wash., is stopping along the way at fire stations and police departments to spread her message because she says fire and police departments were greatly affected by the 9/11 attacks, and can also understand the importance of this investigation. She is shown here near the Erie Bureau of Fire's Central Fire Station at 12th and Sassafras streets in Erie. CHRISTOPHER MILLETTE//ERIE TIMES-NEWS
Rena Patty and Pam Senzee are a couple of wonderful women who are making their way across the country to spread 9-11 truth. Somewhere in the midwest the duo split up, Rena is on her way to NYC and Pam is headed to DC. Read about their journey (and contribute to their cause!) here

I moved through the most urban parts of Cleveland pretty quickly, grateful for light traffic on a Saturday afternoon. In the greater Cleveland area, I stopped a several fire stations, Huron, Lorain, Sheffield Lake, Euclid, Wickliffe, Willoughby, Mentor, Painesville, Grand River and Perry. I also stopped at the police stations in Huron, Willoughby and Mentor, and I give DVDs to patrol officers in Braetenal, Painesville and Perry.
At all of these stops I was received with respectful consideration of the effort to ride across the country to raise awareness for AE911Truth – everyone said some version of "thank you, I'll take a look at it." One police chief listened as far as the nanothermite and said "Well, how did that get there?!" When I said, that's the reason for the call for a proper investigation, he said, "That's what I was just thinking." One fire chief, welcomed me warmly and invited me in, and then when he started listening to the evidence he put on a really good poke face – I honestly could not discern anything from his facial expressions. He did offer me a fire department patch before I left the station. At another fire stations, one of the firefighters was very skeptical but interested and agreed to watch the DVD, and one firefighter was very interested and asked questions about who and motive that I just couldn't answer – he said that he had wondered how the buildings could come down the way they did, that he was interested, he'd definitely watch the DVD.
At one police station the dispatcher sent me to deliver the DVD upstairs at the detective division – the receptionist there, when she'd heard that I'd ridden 3300 miles, in her surprise offered me water. I told her that I didn't need water at the moment. The pattern continued when I went around the corner to the fire station, one of the firefighter had the same immediate response "Wow, do you need some water?" I assured him that I was well hydrated. As I was sitting outside talking with a news editor, a training officer came by, and a few minutes later came back with a bottle of water – he actually got a bottle of water into my hand (even though I was well hydrated).
I also stopped at the WELW radio station to deliver a DVD. I have an interview set up with that station for Oct 17. I dropped in on the Mentor Herald News and talked with the editor – the reporters were all busy, so I offered to send a press release and a photo. I also talked with the editor of the Mentor Patch online newsletter affiliated with AOL. Here's the article.
