Animal news: The swarm of killer bees did not arrive. However…

I just saw this New York Times piece and found myself saying, “Oh, nuts.”

Some time ago, one of those 17-year cycles ago, when I was spending time in Washington, DC (reminder: a southern city), I encountered cicadas. I was ever so unhappy about it. I found them awful, frightening, disgusting. Yet they were, as far as our persons were concerned, harmless.

And now, take a look at the murder hornet. Up there, at the link.

I don’t know why that guy who’s sporting it on his jacket is smiling. I wouldn’t be smiling. I’d be screaming.

P.S. Yesterday, today…scare stories. What is happening to me?
