The Forgotten Menace

Some welcome levity from the archive of

In today's world, there's much to be afraid of. With terrorism and global warming threatening our existence, it's natural to push other concerns out of our mind, even if they are more looming and immediate.

Nonetheless, we have to ask ourselves, whatever became of the killer bees?

Several decades ago, an African bee was let loose in the rain forests of Brazil. It made the queen bees swoon with its African mojo. And now, hordes of these Africanized killer bees are poised to invade the United States.

Of course, Big Honey would have you think that there's nothing to worry about. They tell us that most of the United States is protected by the winter freeze.

But, have you ever thought that global warming will eventually strip us of that seasonal barrier exposing us to an onslaught of invaders from the South?

Have you ever thought that while we are so busy worrying about global warming, the economy and illegal immigrants, these African bees are slowly infiltrating our environment to increasingly devastating effect?

All the while, Big Honey is raking in record profits.

When will our political leaders and scientists stop distracting us with talk about global warming, the new ice age or whatever and begin facing the forgotten menace -- killer bees?
