Long after the bombs fall and you and your good deeds are gone, cockroaches will still be here, prowling the streets like armored cars.

Given the current Trumpian dystopia gaslighting impeachment nightmare, I tried to imagine a ground zero worst scenario.  I guess this is it.

I might as well post this to my blog because no magazine or gallery would likely ever want it.

Koko Searches for the Right Word

Famously, Koko felt quite sad in 1984 when her adopted kitten Ball was hit by a car and died. How do we know? Here is nonhuman primate grief mediated through language: In historical footage in the film, Patterson is seen asking Koko, "What happened to Ball?" In reply, Koko utters these signs in sequence: cat, cry, have-sorry, Koko-love. And then, after a pause, two more signs: unattention, visit me.

Mother Nature Swims with the Dolphins

Scientists are trying to determine why more than 260 bottlenose dolphins have been found stranded along the Northern Gulf of Mexico since the beginning of February.

The number of dolphin deaths is about three times higher than the average for the time period, researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Friday.

Some of the stranded dolphins had skin lesions associated with freshwater exposure, which is being investigated as a possible contributing factor, NOAA researchers said. In addition to skin lesions, dolphins can suffer from abnormal blood chemistry, swelling of the cornea and even death if they are exposed to low salinity water for an extended time.

Researchers said high levels of rainfall and flood control actions have altered the flow of freshwater in dolphin habitats this year. Dolphins in the area also suffered health problems after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 that may make them more susceptible to the effects of low salinity.
