Driving to my weekly CAT-scan appointment at Alameda Hospital earlier today, I came across what appeared to be a dead squirrel in the middle of the road. I have never seen such a thing here in Alameda. Mice, Parrots, Opossums, yes, but never a dead squirrel.
I was more than a little alarmed because this is exactly what you warned against back in May, predicting that the squirrels would stage a "False Flag" attack on a portion of their population in order to gain sympathy to start an all-out war.
Please forgive the gruesomeness of the attached image, and if you have children or ladies nearby, don't show them this photo, but I felt compelled to offer this as proof that something is amiss!
If this is indeed what I fear, than this day will be a day that will forever live in infamy, and the term "6/19" will send chills up the spines of our children and grandchildren as they think back about the event that triggered the Great Squirrel War of Alameda.
