The bus in this photo, was totaled by fire, around 9:30 pm, Friday night, 1/11/08.

 This bus, often mired in controversy since the IVAW "Dirty South" tour that left Philly in June, and had Active Duty BBQ's @ Ft Meade, Ft Jackson, Camp Lejeune, Ft Benning, and other Southern Military Posts ( Including an IVAW benefit by Tom Morello, of Rage Against the Machine, and AudioSlave, in Virginia ) as well as backdrop for many a Demonstration, and Ft Drum, NY, organizing parties, has finally died.

This photo shows the huge "Don't Attack Iran" and "Impeach Bush"   logos, that let everybody on the highway know just how the occupants felt about the state of the state. 
Owner~Operator~Driver ( and Veteran ) Jim Goodnow pulled into a South Jersey Truck Stop, to catch a 3 or 4 hour nap.  Jim saw, in retrospect, some suspicious activity outside the bus, and about 20 minutes later, the entire engine compartment, and back of the bus was engulfed in flames.     Mr Goodnow speculates that the cause could have been anything from ARSON, to ATTEMPTED MURDER.  He plans to notify the ATF Arson Squad on Saturday morning.    Stay tuned....

P.S. Jim's PHONE # is 254-652-0089
HAVE FOLKS CALL HIM
He's shook up

Be Well, RAISE HELL !
