The mistaken shooting of a domestic cat is prompting Redlands police to issue binoculars to officers involved in the hunt for a mountain lion that is believed to have been menacing residential neighborhoods for at least 2½ years.

This reminds me, have we firmly established tomdicso's gender yet? It's the "disco" part that gives me visions of a cougar slinking around some club or another.

Probably wearing a pink leisure suit.

Maybe this is the reason why we keep getting sightings of a black mountain lion or panther in the bay area.

Mike,

I'm afraid the "disco" in tomdisco isn't very exciting. It was originally an achronym for Thomas Distributing Company, an old business name originally created to sell nylon rope to fixed based aviation operators for aircraft tie-downs. I later changed it to Thomas Enterprises to cover a number of ventures. I used my middle name for business because my last name is too difficult for people to remember or spell. I'm stuck with the handle on this web site unless I cancel and start all over again. Sorry to disappoint. I'm one of the last people you would ever see slinking around a night club. Not my scene. Nature is my music.

Look at Bee's ribbing on the trail to El Cap.
