Mother Criticized Over Fight To Banish Acorns Form Schoolyard.


"Donna Giustizia told Vaughan, Ont., city council that the saplings dropping tree nuts onto school property pose a threat to young students with anaphylaxis-inducing allergies and are infringing on their right to a nut-free space."

I think the belief in a right to nut-free space in the great outdoors is kind of oxymoronic...

    Well that's just nuts.

    That bit of wisdom, if brought to this country, could eliminate half of the posters on speakout and the threads.

    More from our neighbors up North:

    Lock up your cat, save a bird!


    Nova Scotia's Ecology Action Centre wants people to place their cats under house arrest to stop the killing of songbirds.

    Methinks Cape Girardeau's starling population could do with a few more housecats thinning their numbers.

    And more from the dead-bird department:

    "Birds fall dead in Arkansas town for second year in a row"


    (This one's actually from January, but I missed seeing it in the news...)

    Lock up your cats.... might as well try locking up your women.

    Cats and women do as they please.... men and dogs may as well get used to it.
