The news is filled with bad tidings. Fires all over Northern California. Plus a hurricane bearing down on the southern tip of the state, bringing a rain of biblical proportions that might dump two or three years worth of water in only a few hours. There are law suits against deities in New York, Florida, Texas, and Georgia -- oh well, all of the Deep South -- as well as the District of Columbia. Covid isn't over yet, it's resurging. A new improved virus.
All set to take out a few thousand more anti-vax Fox watchers.
Now hipper than ever.

And there are mosquito borne illnesses from tropical foreign places taking hold.
Malaria, Dengue Fever, and West Nile.


If I were in Marketing, I'd sign up some native pests as my clients. All of a sudden, hornets don't look so bad, eh? Nothing is more all-American and traditional this time of year.
And it's the very quintessence of waspy! Can't get more wasp than that!

Let us praise the hornet. George Washington was stung by them, and look at what became of him! Father of the nation! How grand!

The hornet; a patriot pest.
And hallelujah.
One of the great things about hornets is that they are colourful and photogenic.
They're quite lovely, unlike those foreign mosquitoes.
Malaria, Dengue Fever, West Nile.

Wouldn't you rather have your vacation ruined by hornets, instead of malaria, dengue, and West Nile? Hornets like sweets, so consider it a compliment. Mosquitoes simply want your blood. And they spread disease. How pedestrian!

We treasure our vespid fellow Americans.
They'll save America yet.
