Knock ‘im out, John!

The interwebs have been on fire as a raccoon scaled a 25 story building in St. Paul, MN. Videos and photos on YouTube and Twitter abounded as the coon scaled the building. The Rocket (or Spiderman?) wannabe finally reached the roof, and was trapped by animal control.

The next time this rascal decides he wants to climb, he should pick a huge sweet gum tree down in the swamp, and his only worry will be John Eubanks climbing up there after him.


“Above all things, lose no occasion of exercising your dispositions to be grateful, to be generous, to be charitable, to be humane, to be true, just, firm, orderly, courageous, etc. Consider every act of this kind, as an exercise which will strengthen your moral faculties and increase your worth.”

–Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Peter Carr
