A nonsensical list

Movies never made include…

“Grand Coulee Dam Hotel.”

“Grand Coulee Dam Illusion.”

“Grand Coulee Dam Canyon.”

“Pooh's Grand Coulee Dam Adventure.”

“Grand Coulee Dam Prix.”

“Grand Coulee Dam Theft Auto.” 

Did you watch the PBS show on dam?

You know, the PBS “American Experience” on Grand Coulee Dam.

I recorded it Tuesday and watched it last night. I had a couple of quibbles, but thought it was pretty good.

Would be interested in knowing what others thought.

Not to be hideously morbid or anything

But is it possible to visit Grand Coulee Dam without imagining what it would be like to fall into the water behind the mammoth structure and get sucked into the power-generating station?

That would be bad. Going through one of those colossal turbines would have to smart.

I'm sure the intakes have screens. But still.
