On Squirrels
My previous story about seeing the neat jet black squirrels has provoked all sorts of comment. During the course of today, I found out that:

1) Said squirrels are just a color variant of gray squirrels, which happen to breed color-true.

2) This is a normal phenomenon in this part of Michigan, and it extends about 30 miles south of E. Lansing. I'm not sure how far north.

3) The tales of black squirrels emasculating the native red squirrels out of evilness are pure urban legend, so don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Now you know.
