Nothing New, Don’t Worry

First the Wuhan virus, then the Asian Murder Hornets and just this morning I read about vicious, swimming rabbits coming to savage us with razor sharp teeth.

Such creatures are not new, however. Killer rabbits have been around since the first century. The Rabbit of Caerbannog was featured in the Monty Python movie, “Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

In more recent history, former President Jimmy Carter had an encounter with a fierce, swimming  rabbit back on April 20, 1979. That event was memorialized by singer/songwriter Tom Paxton on his 1981 album, The Paxton Report.

Here is a live version of Tom introducing the song and then performing it.  Tom is the master of polite, political satire. This is a brilliant performance and worth smiling through.

So folks, while we are worrying  who is right and wrong about how to deal with the Wuhan Virus or when the murder hornets will arrive, don’t worry about the killer rabbits as they have already been dealt with.

I’m sure though,  that the hysteria-inducing media will find another impending disaster prior to the general election.

You can count on it.
