SeaWorld San Diego has launched a live penguin cam through March and April to celebrate the BBC Discovery Channel's Frozen Planet series. Watching them, it's hard not to think a. how much happier they'd be in Antarctica, b. of the poignant scene in Happy Feet and c. of their uncertain fate if Heartland, Koch et al have their way.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
