And yet there are those of in on the East side of the state that are still waiting for it. I bet Brown and her comrades have gotten theirs.


'OHA says the death details are still being reviewed and will be released at a later time.' In other words, the OHA is trying to figure out a way to cook the books so that can't get caught lying about the numbers like they have been.
