This may seem surprising to some, but justice prognosticator Donald T(for treason) Trump failed magnificently in his prediction that he would be arrested for one of his hundreds of crimes. Mr. Trump caused multiple networks to drop coverage of anything else, in order to cover him. Police secured buildings and public streets for nothing.
As ace reporter – and sometime satirist – Andy Borowitz noted:
Trump claims failure to arrest him is conspiracy to keep him from getting donations. If not arrested by Friday, Trump said, “I will perform a citizen’s arrest on myself.”

We should be very grateful that raccoon dogs are considered “unusual’ here. They were widely introduced in Europe because of the value of their fur, and they are now recognized as a very destructive invasive species.
But in the U.S., the warnings of scientists, which are too often ignored, were heeded for once. So raccoon dog importation was made illegal and remains illegal. We’ve got hundreds of destructive invasive exotic species in the U.S., many of which could have been avoided. But at least we had the sense to spare ourselves the raccoon dog, and some other countries now wish they had done the same. The raccoon dog is a beautiful interesting animal that should have been left in the part of the world where it is indigenous.
