I have been running regularly since the summer of 1998 (prior to that I ran in high school and junior high, but I ran sprints). I've experienced a lot of things as a runner. But every so often something new happens.
Today something new happened.
A few days ago, my friend Bob posted some photos on Facebook of a juvenile red-tail in our neighborhood devouring a squirrel. This afternoon as I was running through a small park a few blocks from where Bob reported seeing the red-tail, I felt a swoosh of air pass over my head. Instinctively, I ducked my head as something large and feathered zipped over top of me. I then heard a loud PLOP as a large juvenile red-tail nabbed a poor unsuspecting squirrel. I watched the young bird as she mantled over her kill -- snapping photos with my running camera -- until she finally decided to take the squirrel up a tree to eat it.
More photographs of the red-tail hawk on my neighborhood.

I don't like snake oil salesmen. Steve Jobs last contribution to society could end up being saving the lives of some of the people with curable cancer who might otherwise have fallen victim to the siren song sales pitches of these predatory sellers of "snake oil." I'm convinced these snake oil sellers cause a lot of unnecessary pain, suffering, and ultimately death -- and the general public needs to understand and know that.
