    Well, this is ridiculous.

    On another note... after Irene, there were widespread outages in Connecticut, and out-of-state contractors hustled up here to help get power restored. CL&P didn’t pay them. I don’t know if they’re hoping FEMA settles it or what, but they didn’t pay ‘em.

    And they’re capping overtime on the guys who are on line crews as well, which also slows efforts.

    I grew up in CT and honestly, in all the bad storms and power outages we had in southern CT over the years, power was never out for more than two days.. It’s a brave new world. Phht.

    My previous post as well.

    I was working in the law offices. We had several closings lined up, and a pile of stuff from court to go through. I was driving to the corner store to buy coffee, and my cell phone rang. My boss’s son was on a flight that morning out of NYC and we didn’t know what was happening. We’re about 50 mins from NYC.

    When I got back to the office my boss looked like death warmed over, we knew there was a crash, and soon we knew it was a terrorist attack. I was busy on phones, screening clients, forwarding family calls, canceling closings and meetings. All major financial transactions were canceled pending rerouting through other brokerages.

    My brother-in-law works at the state department in DC. We didn’t know he was okay for about 6 hours. Boss’s nephew worked for Cantor Fitzgerald - because cellular and regular phone transmissions were disrupted along the entire mid-atlantic region we didn’t know until after 2pm that he never went to work that day, and when we asked what kept him home he said “I just didn’t go.”

    A good friend of mine was a NYC homicide detective. He’d told me he wasn’t going to be working that day, and for whatever reason I wasn’t concerned, but I saw his son online later and asked “Where’s your pop?” He said “He got called in this morning.” I was filled with this terrible dread. It was 2 nights later I was relieved to tears to hear from him.

    He was tired, emotional, drained to the bone. His best friend had been a first responder,(ESU) and went missing in the first collapse, and he refused to leave the site for 36 hours until he was ordered home.

    How has it changed my life? Growing up in a strong Navy family, and understanding the sacrifices made by the last great generation for our freedoms, I often felt this invulnerability under our flag.. that disappeared on September 11.

    In a way it was a delineating line between the carefree of my youth/teen/twenties years and my adulthood. I still get very achy and emotional on September 11. I can’t even articulate all the reasons why, but yes, that day changed my life forever. I find I am more defensive and still angry at the perpetrators, I more protective of my home, family, AND my country.

    God Bless America, and God Bless our Troops, and those who love her still.

    Barack Obama was out jogging one morning along the parkway when he tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the creek below.

    Before the Secret Service guys could get to him, 3 kids who were fishing pulled him out of the water. He was so grateful he offered the kids whatever they wanted.

    The first kid said, “I want to go to Disneyland “

    Barack said, “No problem, I”ll take you there on my Airforce One airplane.”

    The second kid said, “I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan”s shoes.”

    Barack said, “I”ll get them for you and even have Michael Jordan sign them!”

    The third kid said, “ I want a motorized wheelchair with a built in TV and stereo headset!”

    Barack was a little perplexed by this and said, “But you don”t look like you”re handicapped.”

    The kid said, “I will be after my dad finds out I saved you from drowning!”

    You’re exactly right.

    Small mammals don’t often survive the initial attack to actually become rabid.

    Even so: animals with furious (aggressive - as opposed to dumb rabies where animals become lethargic, and dopey)) rabies wouldn’t advance/retreat/advance/retreat.. they’d attack. Period. Squirrels can be very bossy anyway :)

    I’ve had calls where I’ve pried squirrels off the sidewalls of tires or other inanimate objects, attacking them - but they didn’t have rabies, they had distemper, which is far more common in small mammals, and has symptoms that are often confused with rabies.

    I’d say this squirrel was hand fed by well-meaning humans, lost all fear, and now has become an (albeit healthy) nuisance of the more dangerous variety - dependent upon people.

    I’m a nuisance wildlife operator. I’ve seen the results of people feeding the cute little wild animals often enough.. sad, but funny article anyway. Glad baby wasn’t hurt.

    I must live in the one town in the one county in MA that’s somewhat conservative and pro-2nd.

    My chief’s great, too. Hope he’s with us a while.

    It’d be a trick to hold this up, they’d have to stop hunter’s safety classes, and as far as I know those don’t come out of state general fun, they’re paid for mostly by Pittman-Robertson, licensing fees at Fish/Wildlife.

    LTC requires CEFS or equivalent NRA certificate, right?

    They’d have to change these requirements in law, do they really have the stomach to take that on?

    They really don’t have to change laws.. Can almost promise it won’t happen before Dinky’s booted.

    It’s a “may issue” state. The ass-hats who don’t want to issue still won’t. The chiefs who do, will be removed by attrition eventually (retirement, relocation, etc)

  • Pressure mounts to test elder drivers(MA)

    06/08/2009 7:59:05 AM PDT · 26 of 34

    I see your points, all - and I realize it’s easier to say “something has to be done” than to actually implement it, and I do realize not all older drivers present the same liabilities as others do.

    I guess I should know better than to think these folks have families who are willing to make sure they’re cared for (docs, church, social visits, etc) A lot of towns here in western MA have senior programs that will give people rides, but the more rural folks would be stuck, for sure.

    I guess my perspective comes from that of the elderly drivers who present a more immediate danger: a couple accidents my Dad had, he just told the cops “The sun was in his eyes” and there was no further follow-up..

    Dominnae to GQuagmire
    Advocates for the elderly have sharply opposed age-based oversight as discriminatory, and noted that the state prohibits age discrimination in licensing.

    *Most* older drivers lack the vision and response time for driving int traffic. My Dad was one of them.

    We tried to get his license revoked, and couldn't. His eye doctor said Dad's vision had deteriorated and that he'd have to send a letter to the state, but he never did.

    His driving was so erratic, I can't even tell you how many fender scrapes he had, or curbs he hit. The damage would show up on his Outback, and he'd shrug and say "I don't know when that happened." or ask me what *I* did to his car.

    My daughter and I moved in with him when he was 80 years old, soon after my mother passed away, because my other sisters would have put him in a nursing home: I drove him everywhere he wanted to go, and got him to all his doctor appointments, but he would sneak out as often as he could on his own.

    It was his last semblance of independence (in his eyes- I could understand that much) but he had macular degeneration and funky blood sugar from his diabetes - and his mind wandered a lot.

    In 2007, a month after being diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, he decided to "make the rounds", I knew he couldn't see, he was depressed, he didn't just care if anything happened to him anymore.

    I went to the police department in my town, and had the Sgt at the desk put a "stop & hold" on him.. we called the state police in case he went farther afield, but luckily we found him a town away sitting in a diner flirting wit his favorite waitress.

    I took his keys away, (including any spares) and he was SO angry. It hurt me to have the roles switched and have to be the hard-ass parent to him, but he was a danger to his own and other lives on the road. He said "I'm going to be dead in six months anyway."

    The argument that finally got to him was: "It's bad enough you don't care if your own daughter has to go and identify you in a morgue - what about some other family or small children you hit because you can't see.. do they deserve that, because you don't care?"

    His driver's license wasn't set to expire until 2008. Six months after he passed away. He wouldn't have even had to have another eye test, he could have had it renewed online if he knew that was an option.

    The states have to do something about the older drivers, not just to protect them from themselves, but the other families out there that face a tragedy because they refuse to surrender their "rights" to drive as long as they have a valid license.

    It’s probably related to immune deficiency from rabies.

    They aren't dying of an immune deficiency.. and it has nothing to do with rabies.

    This syndrome disrupts their hibernation and depletes their fat stores, and they fail to thrive.

    They get confused and don't go as deep into caves/mines as they usually do, they sometimes fly out long before it's warm enough, and freeze to death.

    They don't know yet if the fungus, found on noses and sometimes wings, are the cause or effect of this.

    Rabies is a viral neuropathy - nothing like this and doesn't cause "immune deficiencies".

    Yep - any mammal can get rabies.

    Although - rabbits and possums seem to have a metabolic “immunity” that’s not really an immunity, because their system has a hard time assimilating the virus, but it’s NOT impossible for them to contract it.

    The biggest factor in why small mammals don’t usually get rabies is simply because they don’t usually survive the initial attack/exposure that transmits the virus in the first place - but a passive exposure to a freshly dead animal can cause an epidemic, definitely.

    Distemper is a far more likely culprit in sick/aggressive squirrels, though.

    As far as NJ’s stupid gun laws, I hope this is challenged under the Heller ruling - and watch NJ’s notorious crime rate plummet.

    A good friend of mine, a NYC Detective, said that even when they were going to NJ to serve a warrant or on investigations, they could not carry. COPS!!
    Cops could not carry in NJ. Dumb.

    Then you have paintball markers - the only time/place you can use them is in a certified/insured paintball facility. While I don’t really object to this - there are other potential uses of paintball markers in the wildlife industry (and others) that cannot be considered in NJ.

    I would say a bat in a house, in a panic, would have smacked into the maker looking for a place to land.

    They look for places 4' and up because they can't easily take off from the floor.

    I could see a bat dislodging the hinged lid and climbing in.

    The darkness and warmth from the electronics would be very attractive.

    I've taken lots of bats out of houses, you'd be totally surprised at the unlikely places they will find for themselves.
  • Cafe au Bat? Woman Treated for Rabies After Finding Bat in Coffee Filter

    I don’t think you can get rabies by eating the virus.

    You absolutely can contract the virus via mucous membranes in the mouth.

    In fact, the more proximal to the brain, the more dangerous the contact.

    Rabies virus travels along the nerve pathways to the central nervous system to the brain. Once you're synptomatic, there's a 99.99+% mortality rate.

    Potential contact with rabies vector species that cannot be captured, or tested - to mucous membranes, open wounds, cuts, or ANY kind of a bite require post exposure treatment.

    In this case, consider that the bat may have been in the water before the maker turned on. The coffee maker does not boil the water. Just close to it.

    If the bat was rabid, the viability of the virus in heated water is not something I would gamble my life on.

    Amen, and *bump* (keeper)

    I’ve been saying for a while we need to root out the mafia UN, keep most of our aid money home, instead of in some idiot’s well-padded pocket.

    So Yeah, Tom!
