    I was stationed at Castle back when it was an Air Force training facility. Back then, it was pretty remote- - - -a squirrel massacre would have barely gotten anybody's attention. I guess the snowflakes have migrated to the boondocks of the San Joaquin valley.

    "Squirrels" in the sandy, mostly treeless areas of central California are burrowing animals- - - -they're pretty much inedible, and people consider them to be pests. I don't even remember if there was a hunting season for them 40-something years ago.

    Dumb statement of the year on firearms.

    http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2018/...ls-from-truck/

    Allen said, “That is the dumbest thing a person could possibly do- shooting live rounds on an airfield.”

    I've had the experience of not shooting dead rounds (duds); the firing pin hits but nothing happens. Trying to shoot duds would be counterproductive to squirrel eradication. Almost as senseless as shooting blanks!

    So I guess he don't get no points for hands on grounds management
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    This summer, I didn't notice a lot of squirrels. Now that it's winter, though, it's rare to go a day without seeing a dead squirrel on one of the neighborhood streets. I guess they have to cross the streets more to find enough food to sustain them.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    More like the squirrels communicating the locations of the BEST food at the birdfeeders!

    I’m sorry, if I was mayor, I would write it into law that I could shoot squirrels on city property. What’s the point in being mayor if you can’t?
