Recent news of a purple squirrel had me trying to remember an item I blogged about a couple of years ago about a purple squirrel. I can't find the blog item, but did find this article from 2009:sisu: "We haven't seen any purple baby squirrels yet" Here's another from January of 2009. There have been albino and white squirrels, which are natural characteristics. Not so sure about the purple squirrels. I just had a horrid thought: that purple squirreling will become a sport.
Here's the current story of a purple squirrel found in Jersey shore, PA.
In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
