Hey Dawg !
Did you make it to Rainbow Land ?
I was there a short time as I got a ride back to Oakland from Portland so was

I feel like a potato inside.
I was born in the wrong species.
I am so horribly oppressed because you won't accept me as a potato.
Or call me by the accurate term 'Spud'.
How dare you question my 'personal choices'.

RUMOR CONTROL !!!
The gathering is hapening - the location
of the holding camp has CHANGED.
That is all.
I would suggest that folks who are headed out there NOW/EN ROUTE to
holding camp/seed camp to call the Washington Light Line as soon as possible.
It largely depends what the cops are like that stop /arrest you....
If they are having a good day they may send you on your way and not
want to bother with the hassle........
Also if you have bench warrants, those are extraditable as far as I know.
