    Bodhi (internally groaning): Yeah? What kind of artist?
    Lily: A balloon animal artist!

    Meanwhile, I hear there's been a near blackout of information regarding the status of the Oroville dam. Not to worry though. If the dam did fail, there wouldn't be enough time to warn everyone anyway.
    I'd rather die tomorrow as a free man than live a hundred years bound in the chains of tyranny.

    For those who have stood on the wall and fought in defense of others, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

    Several news outlets are running stories specifically on the Oroville Dam and others, some of which are upstream from Lake Oroville.

    Several of those contain pictures or drone videos taken today. Then there's the youtube footage

    I just don't see any news blackout or coverup. Maybe they don't want me to see it, but I'm not directly impacted anyway so....I do have a cousin in Marysville, though. Her neighbor has been working on the dam and gave her early warning the day the emergency spillway was in trouble. Not a peep. Again, maybe it's working all to well, but don't see it.
