Jun 26.. SAN FRANCISCO - Chet Helms.. .. has died of complications from a stroke. He was 62.
....founder and manager of Big Brother and the Holding Company with Joplin as its lead singer..."Human Be-ins" at Golden Gate Park ..

Is this the Fallujah that has been "mostly quiet" or the Fallujah where 3 other patrols have been blasted in recent weeks? The State TV [ABC] in Australia ran a fluff piece the week before, saying that life was returning to normal in Fallujah.

'Near the city of Buhrez, 5 kilometers south of Baquba, two Humvess of American soldiers were destroyed recently. American and Iraqi soldiers came to the city afterwards and cut all the phones, cut the water, cut medicine from arriving in the city and told them that until the people of the city bring the 'terrorists' to them, the embargo will continue.'
