We must beg to differ with a correspondent who suggested that the Raccoon News refers to one raccoon who assumed squatter's rights in the particular sewer drain at this address.
It is we above-grounders who are the squatters on land that belonged to the wildlife of this continent and may once again. Like water in a clear stream that has been temporarily murkied by a probe, the stream flowing will once again run clear.
Until that day, the raccoons we know have taken to the sewers as a matter of survival. We are being out-waited. And, like donkeys, raccoons live a l-o-n-g time.
