Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Rising menace in Texas. | Philadelphia Inquirer | 09/13/2009: "Something crazy is spreading across Texas, and it may be so destructive that one day it will make Texans actually miss the hated fire ant.

Crazy ants, so named because they move in all directions rather than in a straight line, first surfaced in Houston seven years ago and had previously been confirmed in 14 southeast Texas counties as far north as Huntsville.

Now the ants have been seen beyond the Houston area, with sightings in San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley."

My favorite was the grocery-tabloid story about the giant earhworm that terrorized Fort Worth... based on a true story!
