    It was in the summer of '09 when I first heard of the remarkable events involving  the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (hereafter referred to as the BWCA) maneater. I have known the public servant involved for several decades, and I can vouch for his integrity and veracity.   Out of respect for his privacy, I will not reveal his name.  He has since retired from government service and now lives a modest but invigorating lifestyle in the remote reaches of the upper midwest, not far from the shores of Gitche Gumee.  A few minor details may have been mangled. ...
  • Mosteller: Haley puts GOP principles at risk

    Vincent Sheheen’s opening words on his first TV ad, “South Carolina is at a crossroads,” are one intersection over from our state’s political realities. In the governor’s race, it is the state Republican Party that finds itself uncomfortably driven to the crossroads. With a 55 percent win in the last gubernatorial election and seven of eight constitutional offices, Republican, conservative and tea party voters together hold mathematical strength to elect our next governor. In a nation led by Barack Obama and a state led by Mark Sanford, this decision has never been more critical or more complicated. Since the June...

    I know. Big Deal. Who cares? Why post a vanity about it? I don't know. Jaws came out when I was five years old. I just watched it for the first time. I had heard that the special effects weren't that great. So I never bothered watching it. It was actually pretty decent. I don't know about Jaws 2 - 4. Should I bother? Did you know that Spielberg was worried Jaws would be a big failure?

    Human remains found inside killer croc BINTULU (NST) - A crocodile believed to have attacked Sannga Megong, a worker at an oil palm plantation in Sungai Sebeba last month, was caught and killed by villagers here on Sunday. Human bones, hair and parts of a skull were found in the belly of the seven-metre long beast, which was caught in Sungai Similajau, about 100 metres from the location of the May 11 attack. A Sarawak Forestry Corporation spokesman, however, said it could not be confirm whether the crocodile was the one which attacked Sannga, 31. "We will send the bones...
  • The Alligator Is Not a Man-Eater Unless,of Course,It's Feeling Hungry

    Nature, it should be pointed out, always bats last. This is true even in Florida, where, as novelist Carl Hiaasen makes clear, life is more than a little surreal, and where three people were recently attacked and killed by alligators in less than a week. Previously, 17 people had died from alligator attacks in Florida since 1948. There is no record in the United States of three fatal alligator attacks in one year, much less in one week in one state. So something clearly is going on in Florida. Yesterday, as if to emphasize Hiaasen's point, an alligator walked through...

    A 6 meter African rock python swallowed a 10 year old boy near Durban, the first recorded 'man eating' incident for the species.For three hours other children hid up mango trees near the township of Lamontville, too terrified to flee, as the snake first trapped the young boy and squeezed the life out of him before consuming him whole.Police and snake expers found no trace of the child, or his clothing, except for a trail of flattened grass and a trail leading down to a nearby stream.The incident last week prompted wide spread panic among the 50,000 residents of the...
