Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Fightin' with the DEVIL!
My good friend Tim Blair has this to say: Say, not so fast there, Aussie Cobber Tim Mate! Surely you must know that here in good old Amurrica, we don't have janitors, either. Here we have sanitary engineers, which is a much longer, and more prestigious, and a more self-esteem building title than either janitor or "cleaner."
As for this little contest being proposed, it must be said that the noble Didelphis virginiana of our lush and beautiful woodlands is a highly moral and upright creature, and certainly not one to be associated in any manner, recreational or otherwise, with a filthy beast whose main claim to fame according to the newspaper article is its "habit of fighting over decaying carrion and engaging in violent sexual foreplay."
Further, if such a contest were to be arranged (and, again, I am certainly against it on general principles), but if it were to be determined that such a bout would occur, you devil fanciers must be forewarned of the terrible foe you will meet. I found this information on a highly scientific website on the Internet, so you can rest assured it is true and not something I just made up. Not quite an even match for the tiny Tasmanian devil, eh?
So, it would be best for all concerned that we quit this silly game and pursue talk of it no further.
However, I do think it would be an interesting experiment in animal behavior to place a possum, a Tasmanian devil, and Nancy Pelosi in a glass box and see what happens.
