Today, Pottstown. Tomorrow, the World!

Bobby Kish often hears the click of animal feet on macadam when he delivers morning newspapers in the Pottstown area. Typically, he'll turn just in time to see the back end of a fox or a deer.

But at 5 a.m. Monday, the sound was distinctively different. Kish, who had gotten out of his truck to retrieve a misthrown paper, was walking between two parked cars when he saw a 4-foot alligator."

Stephen Colbert has bears, and you, Bill, have 'gators. And now we have both locally in the roughly Philadelphia area...but, given the other rash of stories about mean housecats chasing (the usually sweet-natured) black bears up trees, I think I happier we have more ursines than crocodilians...
