I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth Revelation 6:8

Plague is endemic to the American Southwest. I remember it in Arizona and New Mexico forty years ago.

LOL.

Will your quote be relegated to a false alarm for the millionth time, with respect to the more or less frequent disease outbreaks like the one the article mentions?

That map puts the shivers in me. The area I was born in is all red as is the counties around it.

Last time I was there I noticed that the whole area where I lived was surrounded by prarie dog dens, so bad you can see them on Google Maps.

True dat!

“I got to get into this dude’s pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who’s the gopher’s ally. His friends. The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit.”

LOL

Another test of a suspicious squirrel is to simply observe how they hold their nuts.

There was a squirrel here for a couple of years that had, uh, nut problems. He'd lay spread eagle on top of the kids' swing set to warm them or he'd cool them by laying spread eagle on the step rail under the porch. I don't know what that meant but it was definitely suspicious of something. You want truly suspicious? There's a squirrel in the yard now who uses sticks to dig. Freaky, freaky.
