Happy Easter! Hope everyone else had better weather - we are having "much needed rain", in the words of our illustrious weather charletans. Quiet day with the kitty, talked to Mom from the airport as she left to head back to Hawaii, did some scanning and computer work.

I tried to find something interesting and insubstantial to write about given my recent pechant for ranting about world politics and the American legal system. Unfortunately, the best I could come up with is:

From the Sacramento Bee:

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Sonoma County musician Doug Bowes will remember this Easter season as the one where he happened upon the Easter Bunny, and it attacked him.

Bowes was walking near his home at about 11 a.m. Wednesday when the attack occurred. A small, gray jack rabbit bounded toward him from a nearby fence.

"I thought, 'Gosh, this is somebody's pet,' " Bowes said. He put his hand down in a friendly gesture and the bunny lunged and bit him.

Bowes began to walk home, nursing a sore hand with broken skin, but the rabbit followed him. A short time later, a nearby neighbor had to retreat up a hill after another aggressive jack rabbit forced her back.

Reminds me of the Rabbit scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

ARTHUR: Where?
TIM: There!
ARTHUR: What, behind the rabbit?
TIM: It is the rabbit.
ARTHUR: You silly sod!
TIM: What?
ARTHUR: You got us all worked up!
TIM: Well, that's no ordinary rabbit!
TIM: That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
ROBIN: You tit! I soiled my armour I was so scared!
TIM: Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!

[Run away! Run away!]
