Mark Basile

Mark Basile is a chemical engineer. He holds a bachelor of science in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He has worked for about 25 years in industry and the majority of what he does is analytical work in the field of materials science.

After warm and dry shelter at the Monroeville Community Center, I went to the café for breakfast.  At the post office, I picked up winter gear, so I’m now better prepared for cold weather.  Then I found the library for the opportunity to edit blog posts and check email.  At the Monroeville fire station I delivered a DVD.  One of the firefighters there asked if I’d been to the town of Andrews (I hadn’t) – he took a DVD for the Andrews fire station.  

Then I rode into a head wind to Payne, OH.  In Payne, I gave DVDs to the personnel at the fire station, and left mini-DVDs (Solving the Mystery of WTC 7) with two churches,  the Methodist Church and a Church of the Nazarene. 

I continued riding into the headwind to Paulding.  I felt flat in my enthusiasm – maybe the headwind drained it from me!  A person leaving work for the day asked about my bike trip.  I gave her a business card and asked if the sheriff’s office is in the courthouse.  It isn’t – but she offered to take a DVD for the sheriff and put it in his mailbox in the courthouse for me.  That lifted my spirits.  I put a DVD on the door of the fire station.  And then I delivered one to the receptionist at the police station for the department personnel to share.

I still had twenty miles to ride into a headwind and in the rain.  I gave a mini-DVD to a couple of guys who were eying my bike with curiosity – one of them was an avid cyclist.  On the way out of town I made a quick stop at a bar – one man there knew about AE911Truth, had watched videos online.  I gave the bartender a mini-DVD.  I’m grateful for their friendliness and generosity – every time, it still surprises me when I get cash donations for my wellbeing on the road.

I’m surprised at times that people who are in positions of responsibility in community, fire fighters, police officers, sheriffs, pastors, have heard little about the serious concerns and questions about the official 9/11 story.  But people on the street, in the bars, café’s and convenience stores have been discussing and are open to discussing these concerns.  Are people afraid of their civic leaders, and that’s why there’s a communication gap regarding 9/11?  And if people are afraid of their civic leaders, what does that say about our society?  Or is it that people in positions of responsibility, our civic leaders, are more timid about having open discussions about 9/11?

I found a good place to camp just outside of Defiance, OH, at a Fish and Wildlife Public Access site along a river (I was worried that I'd have to pay for a motel room).  I was able to slip off the road and find a quiet place to set up my tent.  Then another pleasant surprise, Steve White in NYC had set up a radio interview for me with Tom Kiely on I.N.N. World Report, so I did a radio interview from my tent in the rain by a river in Ohio.

Hi Rena,

Thank you for another heartwarming update. Picturing you doing that radio interview from your tent by the river in rural Ohio is a wonderful image. See you in Western New York!
