The bad news is the number of rabid cats increased and for every rabid dog there are four rabid cats.
"It is critical to vaccinate all domestic cats for rabies and keep those vaccinations current, but any cat that roams outdoors is at a much higher risk of contracting rabies than cats kept safely indoors," Fenwick wrote.
"Feral cats, in particular, present a major public health risk. Feral cats are outdoors all the time, and the management of feral cat colonies through trap, neuter, release programs does 'not provide effective rabies vaccination coverage or cat population control,' according to the CDC-led study.
"On the contrary, TNR only increases the likelihood of interaction between feral cats and rabid wildlife."
Proponents of TNR should add the V for vaccination.
The murder of 12 people at the Navy headquarters in Washington has brought calls not for more gun control but for better screening of people with schizophrenia.
"We have to make it where the health care professionals in this country, when they see somebody that is having symptoms of psychosis or schizophrenia, that they can act on that by notifying the 'do not sell' list so that people can't buy guns," Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told CBS on its "Face the Nation" show.
Coburn is a medical doctor.
Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, made the same argument on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Looking at the shooters instead of the instrument of death is a refreshing change from knee-jerk calls for more gun control.
The nation has had gun control since 1968. It's time to expand its options in reducing mass murders.
State and local tax collections set an all-time record in the second quarter of the year, the Census Bureau reported.
In April, May and June, state and local governments collected a combined $114 billion.
That's $7.8 billion higher than the previous record set in the second quarter of 2008.
That's a 7.3 percent increase.
It's nice to know someone is doing better in the recoveryless recovery.
