Ozzie Smith: An understandable decision and an unfortunate result

By Paul Larson Dobbins I took a detour home from the airport this morning to grab some breakfast in Ferguson. I wanted to see the area firsthand before really commenting on it. Granted, I was there during the breakfast hour, but what I found in Ferguson is not what you're reading about in the news in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch & STLtoday.com or seeing on Fox2Now, KMOV, KSDK NewsChannel 5, CNN, Fox News or msnbc.

If you somehow find yourself close to this cat-sized animal and it begins to hiss and stamp its feet, you should quickly move away. If you (or your dog) are within about 10 feet of a skunk and it suddenly turns away from you and raises its tail, you may be sprayed and regret it. As a defensive maneuver, a skunk can spray a very foul smelling liquid from glands under the base of its tail...
