Obama swats fly during interview

Only wimps shoot wolves from helicopters. Real politicians use their bare hands, ninjutsu stealth, and stinging speed to kill wildlife.

    “There was a time when I would’ve caught all three.” – Robert Vaughn in “The Magnificent Seven”

    He sure was proud of killing that fly. I guess it proves he’s tough on pests?

    I laughed. I cried. I hugged my children. Oh wait, I don’t have any children.

    So much for wanting to be a fly on the wall in the White House.

    About Me

    Environmental reporting recruited me 25 years ago—on my first day as a reporter for my college newspaper, when I discovered my college was discarding radioactive waste in the regular city trash. Since then I've written hard news for dailies, including the Arizona Republic, and slanty news for alternative weeklies, including Newcity. I've written a column for New Times, stories on the Web for Forecast Earth, essays for PEN International and other magazines. I lived in an idyllic California village nestled among volcanoes and vineyards until my batteries were full of sunshine, and then I returned to my origins on the South Side of Chicago, where hope persists with no illusions about the struggle ahead. I cross the asphalt jungle by bicycle and el, mostly to get to the University of Chicago, where I teach journalism. But what matters more than any of this is a lifelong love for the natural world. We are all born with it, I believe, but some turn away.
