Quotes

"They start coming back in February," says bass fishing guide Capt. Steve Chaconas, who docks his boat at the Belle Haven Marina. "[In] March, they start getting close to their nests, and right now a lot of them are starting to lay their eggs. Usually you come by here in the morning or in the evening, it's lined up with photographers taking pictures of the ospreys."
"The fox lacks the deference typically exhibited by White HouseHouse guests," reports the WSJ. "He tore through the White House garden when it was left unattended during the shutdown. He graduated to tripping alarms in the middle of the night, napping wherever he pleases and generally living the high life on a campus overseen by dozens of highly trained Secret Service agents."
"You're not allowed to have a live snakehead in your possession at any time. If you leave the water and enter Virginia with a snakehead, you're required to call their snakehead hotline. In Maryland, you're allowed to take fish off the water, but again you're not allowed to possess a live snakehead, you must kill them before you take them off the water."
"I've watched these machinations and wasted years and wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars, believing that at some point, the city would ask some professional river hydrologist or engineer—there are people out there, people in town" Blair said
