do second and final notices on ones credit card account count? I get one of these calls twice, sometimes three times a week for over a year. If I do not act now, I'll lose out on the zer0 stimulus package. Not kidding, that is what the robo call said.

Red fox with mange.

Perhaps in Ridgewood fox are unusual. Here in Somerset County I see at least 3-5 of them every morning on my way to work.

It looks like a red fox with an advanced case of sarcoptic mange. If it is coming in and out of sewers, there is no telling what else it may have picked up

I found the reporter’s demeanor to be offensive - very smug and mocking. No, it shouldn’t have been a response of horror, but something a bit more even-keeled. It was the typical liberal know-it-all attitude, i.e., there’s nothing in the universe that I can’t explain.

"You’d think they could have found a professional zoologist to comment on the animal."

That was my thought, but they seemed content with the Dragnet parody. I thought the reporter was annoying condescending.

I’ve gotten those robo calls from a black female voice telling me it’s my last chance to take advantage of the stimulus package - been getting them for months.

Mystery Creature Sighting Stuns N.J. Town; No One Has First Clue What It Is

The Legendary Vanishing Conservative.

Once these noble creatures thundered across the American landscape in mighty herds.

Today, they have been hunted to the brink of extinction. Sightings have been relegated to the stuff of urban legends.

":)He was fun Steve."

I'm not really an old grouch, but I get annoyed when anything unusual and/or paranormal is treated by the media in this glib manner. They should have brought in a zoologist to make a legitimate guess as to what it was. When I first saw the headline, I thought it was going to be something really weird, but it's just another one of those animal sightings of something slightly unusual that probably has a conventional explanation from someone who knows about animals.

I’ve also been getting those scam calls about the “free” medical emergency alarm - a folksy, white middle-aged voice in those calls. .

In my suburban area, there are still a few coyotes running around (and possums and raccoons). I’ve seen only one coyote, but if I saw something like what was seen in this story I’d probably call it a coyote because I’m not an expert on animals and it looks close enough to be one, or perhaps some kind of coyote/dog hybrid, if that is possible.

BTW, does anyone know when there will be a new season of South Park episodes?

Season 17 will premier September 25, 2013 with ten episodes.

Previous seasons were bifurcated. The first half began in spring and the second half in fall. There was a long break between the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half. There were seven episodes in each half season for a total of fourteen episodes per season.

Season 17, and possibly each season thereafter, will consist of ten uninterrupted episodes.

A Republican ?

Ridgewood is in an area that is very wealthy, quite Republican and has a lot of Christian influence, even various very conservative Reformed Christian denominations that remain there from colonial times.

If all of NJ was like that area, NJ would be the most conservative State in the union.

Of course, the there is a significant influence of "mainstream" Republican ideas and lack of acknowledgement of "new world order" because of the heavy nwo influence amongst the area's population as well. It's a bastion of fine suburban living for those who work in high-paying NYC jobs.

By the looks of it, I would say it spent the weekend with Lindsey Lohan.

It’s a mangy fox. They have long tails and they behave like cats. Case closed.

If it isn’t Carlos Danger lurking in the sewers, then I agree with the fox ID. Long tail is the clue.

“The Ridgewood photo is of a mangy red fox,” DEP spokesman Larry Hajna said in an email.

There has been a strange sighting of a strange creature in a suburban New Jersey town – and pictures of it have residents asking “What the heck is that?”

Was it a CONSERVATIVE? Most people wouldn't know what one is....
