    This is going to get no traction...frog's aren't furry or cuddly or cute looking.

    "Study: Puppies spontaneously combusting!" That would work.

    In a serious/similar note; why are asthma rates going through the roof?

    Because we live in fake colonial villages isolated among four lane roads, and have to breathe each other's exhaust fumes just to buy a loaf of bread or take a kid to their friend's. Even though we live outside of cities, in the outdoors, with our own lawns, we get less exercise because it's impractical to walk or bike anywhere?

    I think this country needs a change in thinking on public transportation, focusing less on highways and more on commuter rail. That would both reduce pollution, reduce the amount of time we inhale that pollution in traffic jams, and get us off our asses. Imagine a life without traffic jams.

    Maybe the environmentalists have done such a good job protecting their natural predators that they are eating more amphibians than normal.

    I don't know. But I'll bet it's Bush's fault somehow.

    Maybe Frogs are supposed to die out...(shrug). Species have been going extinct for thousands of years.
