The Smell of Fear (or Terrorists of a Different Stripe)

"TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - Skunks have invaded a downtown neighborhood, and the city has agreed to spend $2,500 to get rid of them.

"In a letter to City Hall, residents said nearly 30 skunks had been spotted in the area. They've ransacked bird feeders and trash bins, sprayed pets, crawled under houses and even strolled along the streets at midmorning.

"It sounds humorous, but it really isn't," Bob Sniff [sic], whose dog has been sprayed three times, told the Traverse City Record-Eagle for a story Tuesday. "It's been pretty unbearable."

Michigan seems to be the location of choice for all sorts of invading skunks.

UPDATE: More smelly stuff from Michigan.

"Members of Detroit's Latino, Asian and Arab communities demanded a public apology from the City Council on Tuesday, denouncing the body for embracing an economic development plan that would exclusively benefit black business owners.

"During a protest rally, leaders of the various ethnic communities said they want the council to rescind the resolutions it passed supporting the plan, and they want to meet with the council to correct what they say is offensive rhetoric in a report that forms the basis of the council's plan to create a black business district to be known as African Town. The plan also would create a loan fund only for blacks…

"They took issue with some of the language in the report [which] refers to Dearborn as Arabtown, and says Hispanics, Asians and Arabs are classified as whites so they enjoy benefits denied blacks."

Calling the Pied Piper and Puss 'n Boots Español se requiere.

"MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) - Health authorities in the northern state of Chihuahua said Tuesday they are recruiting hundreds of cats to fight hundreds of thousands of rats. Chihuahua state officials say they hope to collect as many as 700 felines and send them to Atascaderos, an isolated farm village in the rugged Tarahumara mountains, a region where officials estimate there are about a half-million rats."

Solve two problems for the price of one: give a free kitten to every illegal caught crossing our border and point them toward Chihuahua.

Token Tennessee Potshot

"A Head Start teacher in Nashville was surprised when a 4-year-old brought a baggie of marijuana with him to preschool, Metro police said in a statement. The youngster said it came from his mother…

"She told police she would test positive if given a drug test and admitted to using marijuana earlier this month, but she denied either giving pot to her son or letting him have access to it, police said. [The mother] was charged with child abuse and was being held last night with bail set at $5,000."

It's Tennessee--'nuf said.
