Another school attack...
Let that be a lesson to you. Step on its head.
Any Squirrel that invades a classroom, uninvited, is by definition insane and should be put down at the first opportunity.
Punching, stamping, and flinging at walls are not out of the question. If you don't have the dead animal at the end of it, if it escapes, everybody bitten will need a painful course of anti-rabies treatments.
If it DOESN'T escape, you still may need the treatments, but at least you'll know they're necessary.

We need to ban squirrels in schools. Put no-squirrel zones around every elementary school...

Yeah, the 'toons link' was completely pointless. Thanks very much.

Banning squirels... wouldn't the National Nut Association complain?

Pointless because you followed it and found crap or it was blocked by the man's evil efforts to thwart free speech and keep us down?

Foamy's my hero. Unfortunately some of the really funny ones have gone away and appear to no longer be hosted.

Not so painful anymore.
Expensive, yes. My neighbor got her bill for the post-exposure rabies series -- $4000
(insurance covers 80%, but still...)

That's a stupid thing to charge for. Would the HMO prefer prevention or treating rabies itself?

Rabies is fatal within a month without treatment. It's not a disease you can 'manage'.
July 18th, 2007 10:54am
Hmm, I had it in my head from House that it couldn't be treated. I think I also said this recently. Why are we talking about rabies here all the time?
July 18th, 2007 10:56am
Rabies shots should be 100% covered. That's just a public safety issue, especially since making the wrong choice is inevitably fatal.
For an insurance company to let someone die because they couldn't cough up $800 ... unfortunately this has never stopped them before.
Another justification for health care to be strictly non-profit.

Why can't we just figure out a way for facelifts, lipo, and boob jobs to subsidize basic healthcare and preventitive medicine? It's gotta be about even...

You know, that's a pretty good idea! And I won't feel nearly so frivilous when I get that rejuvenation surgery in a few years.

The nip-tuck tax?
