We need bats; but our bats are dying. In Spring 2006, 6.5 million Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus) lived in the Eastern US, making them America's most common wild mammal species. Later that same year, thousands of little bodies were discovered strewn outside caves near New Albany, New York. Bats were dying in catastrophic numbers. Eight years later, millions of bats have died, and still continue to die. Little Brown Bats are now listed as a "threatened species" in multiple states. This is "the most precipitous decline of North American wildlife in recorded history." And yet, public outcry over the loss of bats has been strangely muted. What's killing the bats isn't pesticides, viruses, or bacteria. It's a fungus, Pseudogymnoascus (Geomyces) destructans, and it causes a disease called White Nose Syndrome. There is no treatment or cure.

It was on this day in 1886 that the Statue of Liberty was officially unveiled and opened to the public. It was gift from France intended to celebrate the two countries' shared love of freedom, shipped to the U.S. in pieces packed into 214 crates. Workers put it back together in New York. The day of the dedication was cold and rainy, but huge crowds came out for the celebration anyway. The statue was under veil, and the sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi was alone in the statue's crown, waiting for the signal to drop the veil. A boy down below was supposed to wave a white handkerchief at the end of the big speech. The boy accidentally waved his handkerchief before the speech was over and Bartholdi let the curtain drop, revealing the huge bronze lady, and gunshots rang out from all the ships in the harbor. The speaker, who had been boring everybody, just sat down.

i paid $2.89 a gallon for gas this afternoon. That was with a King Soopers discount of 10 cents a gallon but it still means that gasoline prices have fallen below $3.00 a gallon. It's been a long time since we saw that.
