Snake 07Is it just me? I don’t like snakes. Not in the wild, not in zoos, not in cages. Nope, no thanks.

And now a 31-year-old snake lover in southern England was found suffocated to death in a room where he housed his snakes. The pet python was loose and the man was dead.


I hear about pythons multiplying in the Florida swamps like bunnies in an Easter parade. Snakes getting loose on planes. There was the case of baby cobras being smuggled into the US in potato chip cans.

There. I said it.

I’m glad we had this talk.
