A real-life visit to American Camp will confirm the return of the prairie grass and the disappearance of the bunnies (contrary to the pics in the NPS/American Camp website (http://www.nps.gov/sajh/naturescience/prairie-restoration-dispelling-myths.htm).

The extermination has already happened. A few hardy bunnies remain and NPS wants to shoot them because, just like life, rabbits refuse to go away.

NPS wants to get rid of everything that isn't "native." Now, there's a concept. They also claim that fox don't eat rabbits. But check out the above NPS web page.

If you care about this final eradication, show up to either make a well-behaved public fuss in front of the greater world (as represented by folks coming in on the Friday ferry) at 6 p.m. on July 23 at the ferry terminal. Signs are good. The more homemade, the better. There will be some planning afterward at the Rumor Mill.

Or, go to the public hearing, with signs and heart on sleeve, and be heard on July 27 at Mullis Center, 1-3 p.m. Or, make like rabbits: e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and multiply. Pass it on.

"Pooh," said Rabbit kindly, "you haven't any brain."
