The world has officially fallen off its axis. I’m convinced of it.  That, or we’ve slipped through one of those black holes and everyone is having a hard time regaining equilibrium.

I didn’t discover this latest disaster until early the wee hours this morning. Sleepless and bored, I tuned the TV to a program taped by the Mississippi wildlife organization.  I have zero interest in hunting and fishing but what caught my attention was the intriguing lead-in. Continue reading
