Noted. Thanks, Cal. I love the courage and guts Lawless has...she's bringing her name to this and giving it the high-profile necessary to get the word out on this important matter. There can never be too much of this; I hope other "celebrities" join her to keep the light on it.

Climbing a 174 ft tower? I would have frozen-up at around 40 - 50 ft. Great to see an actor tackle a mega- corporation, not to mention a scary climb.

we also need to fight the states that are trying to make video taping factory farms, etc a crime ("terrorism?") we definately have a right to know. The corporations don't even have to be in the petroleum industry to be "oily".
