Yeah, most people don't know that the vast majority of viruses attack other microbes. As I put it sometimes, Ambiguities are like microbes, the pathogenic ones steal the attention. People hear "microbe" or "virus" and they think "human pathogen". Like they hear "ambiguity" and think "conflicts of interpretations".

But that's just fiction stories. Nothing to worry about. ;-)

The same AG that's threatening punitive and retaliatory criminal charges against journalists who publish the (ostensibly) public records of CA police officers who have been conducted of criminal acts?

Unusual Visitor In Maine

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A hawk that is native to Central and South America drew a lot of attention from Maine’s birding community Friday after appearing in a park, where it brawled with a fellow raptor and dined on a squirrel.

Great black hawks typically live from Mexico to Argentina, and exactly how this individual made it to Maine is a bit of a mystery.... Audubon has called it potentially the first record of the species in the U.S.
