"Shrew Shot Venom Through Blood-Red Teeth."

My favorite headline today.

off topic, but I'll say that you're missing excitement in Madison, althouse.

First of all, University Ave. has lost two lanes to Construction from Shorewood to Park Street. And the neighborhood all around Hoyt Park is shut down for a massive manhunt for a murderer. So no driving on Bluff, either. I'm glad I don't have to drive from the University to Middleton.

Imus's Charles McCord described Imus's agent Esther Newberg as a fang on feet. real audio. Nov 18, 2000.

It was amusing enough to make it to the hard drive anyway.

Is this about Obama's potential Supreme Court nominees?

Strange as it seems, the smallest mammal
Is the shrew, and not the camel.
And that is all I ever knew,
Or wish to know, about the shrew.
--Ogden Nash

Having read about the venom and the blood-red teeth, I am with Mr. Nash regarding the sufficiency of present knowledge.

OK, maybe I am getting some bad color here, but those blood red teeth look more like nicotine stains to me.

Is it possible they found a fossil of a blood spitting, cigarette smoking shrew?

Naw. Thought not.

Could this fossil actually be the missing link to Nancy Pelossi's ancestors?

Bette Davis is buried in Forest Lawn, not in Spain.
