Been a bad week. Too much going on. Help.

FROM Trent Schneider of Lake County:

“Do you or anybody else know a good place to get deer teeth aged by the cementum-annuli method?”

FROM Don Axt of Peoria:

“We live in a weird upsetting world where people seem to get a kick out of mucking something up in one way or another … creating computer virus is but one example. All that needs to happen is for some ill developed mind to find that introducing the Asian carp into Lake Michigan will cause great ecological upset and you can be sure that mental case will cause it to happen … will catch a couple carp … dump them in the beer cooler and carry them off to the lake to empty empty with a giggle.”
