The two Boeing 767s that hit the World Trade Center on September 11 were traveling at 400 to 600 miles per hour and, loaded with passengers and fuel, weighed almost half a million pounds each. Only an expert could attempt to analyze the forces that brought down the buildings. Morgan Reynolds tackled the job, and his engineering study concluded that the planes alone couldn't possibly have done the job. The supposed terrorist attack, Reynolds says, was actually a controlled demolition. But Reynolds isn't an engineer, nor an architect, nor even a pilot. He is a retired economist. Yet for thousands of September 11 conspiracy buffs, Reynolds' brief stint as senior economist in the Bush Labor Department is credential enough. Reynolds hosts a screening of September 11 conspiracy films (Loose Change 2nd Edition and September 11 Revisited) 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway. Donations accepted.
