  1. Jeff, That is an easy one to deduce – She is a liberal not a wackadoodle Republican/tea bagger/Sate of Jefferson member.

    I heard later, via Facebook, that The Union was offered this story, along with the Sacramento media, but said it was “too busy” with local election stories. My thought: “Huh? You’ve got to be kidding me!” This does make people wonder about motives, since Fran is not a “good old boy/girl.” Editors all across America covet animal stories like this, because they are so popular with readers. And sure enough, this wonderful story is “lighting up the boards’ in social media. Podunk news judgment.
