    I just received the following in my inbox from the principal of Palo Alto High School:
    Given the hue and cry from the shooting a couple weeks ago, I figure this one isn't going to be shot.

    Well, this should be interesting...

    Just send all the people who complained about the Palo Alto police shooting the last lion that was in the vicinity of a school. They all seemed to have ideas as to handling lions, so let them deal with it. I'm sure any of them would be perfectly willing to let the lion chew on them to keep the children safe.

    To: The parents of all Palo Alto H.S. students...
    Geeee Whizzz, aren't we the lucky ones? Another beautiful Felis concolor was recently spotted in our neighborhood. As we all know, they're just big old soft cuddly kitty cats who are misunderstood due to those evil men with guns who call themselves sportsmen or hunters. We have no need to fear them, but instead, we need to understand them and should learn from them. After all, we humans have encroached on THEIR lands so THEY should have the right of way.
    Maybe we could all get together for a big group hug at the H.S. early Saturday morning, then all go for a walk in the woods together with everyone laughing and singing and wearing bells or playing flutes and we can allow our children to frolic through the woods cavorting gleefully, squealing and running about like little children are prone to do when they have quality freedom time from oppressive parental supervision in a wooded region known to house several species of native wildlife... In this fashion we can safely drive the poor frightened wild animal back to it's den, away from our children and their important interactive social learning environment, thus ensuring our childrens safety.
    One thing we cannot allow is for the evil police agencies to bring harm to this poor hungry innocent creature.
    So plan on meeting everyone at 8:00AM this saturday morning. Bring your love beads, think beautiful thoughts and be sure to wear a flower in your hair.
    I have volunteered to scout ahead of the group on my mountain bike at sunrise.
    Sincerely,
    Bambi Thumper, Ashton and Heather's mother.

    Actually, the high school's group hug was held across the street from the high school, in the Stanford stadium. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure I'll always miss the temperate climate and beaches.

    Wolf,

    Move to FL. We have beaches, temperate (sorta) climate, and reasonable folks (except those from up north during the season). You might like it.

    Like the poor couple who were eaten by a Griz in Alaska a few months ago,
    I have ambivalent feelings: I don't want to hear of anyone being eaten alive, but, get with the program: while you Visualize Whirled Peas, carry a big gun into the woods, m'kay? :rolleyes:

    Lion repellent?

    The locals should use the aromas of burning sage and patchouli oil to drive away the lions.

    I don't know if it'll work on the lions, but whenever they get around me with that stuff, my appetite disappears and I get away as quickly as possible.

    It's worth a shot. :scrutiny:

    We have the same problem here (although not as dangerous) with deer. People mive out to "the country" and then can't believe how many deer there are, but try to suggest thinning the herd through hunting to reduce car/deer accidents, etc. and the bambi huggers go nuts.

    I don't get it:confused:
