The Madness: Save the squirrels!

The Earth’s waters are laced with drugs—from prescription and over-the counter medications, to caffeine, to antibiotics from personal care products. Marine environments are also tainted with illegal drugs. ~ Smithsonian

Look! I'm a tree!
I told you there is something in the water. It's Friday, so it must be time to survey the madness. Hold on.

Try twisting them. Brigid Delaney, a writer for the Guardian Australia, is the latest victim of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The headline of Delaney’s column Wednesday says it all: “I stopped going to the gym because of Trump. Now I can’t open jars.”

Nuts. A woman was arrested after leaving her pet squirrel in a hot car that reached temperatures over 100°F.  

Use less tape next time. A California university professor died during a bondage session at the home of a Hollywood executiv. Doran George, 48, who was born Duncan Gilbert and did not use gendered pronouns, had been wrapped “head to toe in plastic wrap and gaffer’s tape, with small breathing holes at the nose and mouth,” according to an autopsy report. “The decedent’s partner observed that the decedent was not reacting properly."

Duck and cover. Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer said perhaps there could be a "nuclear war" that would provide a "real course correction" to Donald Trump's presidency.

Woman speak with forked tongue. A 23-year-old woman has revealed her incredible transformation after spending more than $8,000 on body modifications, including a split tongue and blue inkings on her eyeballs.

Well, it's Hollywood. The city of West Hollywood will honor adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, better known by her stage name Stormy Daniels, with a key to the city and a public proclamation Wednesday for her role in the “#RESIST movement.” Daniels has “proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation.”

And they're boring, as well. Novelist Barbara Kingsolver seriously asserts that trees are people too. "Trees do most of the things you do, just more slowly. They compete for their livelihoods and take care of their families, sometimes making huge sacrifices for their children. They breathe, eat and have sex. They give gifts, communicate, learn, remember and record the important events of their lives."
