Default Is Mansfield Dam a Terrorist Target?

It was reported on the news that a suspicous man had taken pictures of the Texas Capitol in Austin and video of the Mansfield Dam (which creates Lake Travis). I know that if someone wanted to wipe out Austin, they would not blow up downtown. They would blow up the Mansfield Dam. The resulting flood would wipe out Austin.

The easiest way to do this would be to rent a houseboat, fill it with exposivies, and drive it to the dam.

I propose that the following actions be taken immediately. Since the terrorists hate female nudity, I think that all true patrotic women should go topless (or even nude) while on Lake Travis. This will show support for our country and scare away any terrorists.

If you see a boat with no women or non-topless women, do not allow them near the dam!

God Bless America!

true, true... All lakes and dams are potential targets. Maybe the Office of Homeland Security should pay the OSO membership to inspect our local lakes every weekend and enforce the new "policy".

Well Hippie Hollow is closest to the damn but I don't think that will get the results you're looling for.

You refer to her as MILF in front of your wife? Perhaps it was that which she frowned on.
