Squirrel With Plague Detected In California Campground

Squirrel With Plague Detected In California Campground:  According to a public health advisory, a ground squirrel found in a Los Angeles-area campground has tested positive for plague, causing authorities to shut down part of the Angeles National Forest for at least a week.  In an angry late night tweet, President-elect Donald Trump promised that as soon as he takes office, he plans to look into revoking squirrel camping privileges in all of our nation’s National Parks. 


Hawking Issues Another Warning to Humanity:  Fresh from warning us about the dangers of contacting ET, renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking is now appearing in an anti-obesity campaign ad for a Swedish non-profit, cautioning everyone that obesity is one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century.  One thing’s for sure, when that Stephen Hawking workout video comes out, that should bring a lot of attention for the cause.



Theory Challenging Einstein's Speed to Be Tested:  A new paper describes for the first time how scientists can test a controversial idea that speed of light is not a constant as Einstein claimed.  Fine, test anything you want, but just don’t screw up my GPS.  I have to be somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I overnighted once in a CA campground and was somewhat alarmed by the signs warning that it was a plague zone...  Didn't mention squirrels ... just general *plague*.  Happy to leave in the morning.
