Denuded saplings and possible porcupine lair

Denuded saplings and possible lair of the devilbeasts.

A horrified citizen has spent a couple days cataloging the damage being done to saplings in Franklin Park by what he says are porcupines on the munch - and is disputing the official city response that the damage is actually the work of "invasive rabbits," which, when you think of it, might be worse.

In the Before Times, some people would walk or jog clockwise around Jamaica Pond while others would go counter-clockwise. As long as people didn't keep their heads down, it worked out fine and life was good. But now, with infections concerns at a fever pitch, some folks are wondering: Should people all walk or jog in the same direction, to reduce the odds of getting coughed or sneezed on by somebody coming the other way and increase that social distancing to at least six feet at all times? And if so, which direction?
