Easy on the eyes.

Whoever the Dem is in 2020 will win unless the Repubs kick Trump out. I don't think Trump will last 2017, though, so the D's will be in for a tough campaign.

I always thought millennial was through 29....I certainly don't think of 34-35 yos as millennials. Most of the people we make fun of as millennials are early to mid 20s

It's not a uniform distribution Dot. Are there some really talented millennials who value work? Sure...but the fact that a miniscule collection at the top do good things doesn't make up for the vast incompetence and lack of direction. The CEO of fb is 33(not a millennial in my book) and the CEO of Google is much closer to aarp than millennial.
 
I'm just not seeing much to be impressed with in the 19-29 group. Let's hope they get it together someday

I looked it up. The Wikipedia article says otherwise.
 
Oppossums
 
Experimental studies of rabies infection in the Virginia opossum
have shown the importance of the mode of transmission. Opossums
became infected when exposed to air-borne virus but were found to
be fairly resistant to intramuscular inoculations. The aerosol
transmission of rabies in opossum was investigated following the
death from rabies of two men who had visited the Frio Caves,
Texas, and did not remember any direct contact with bats.
 
Rabies cases in the Virginia opossum are spillover cases from
other wildlife species such as bats, skunks and the raccoon
epizootic in the eastern United States. Cases have been reported
across the United States from California to New York. In New York
state, laboratory confirmed rabies cases in opossums occurred
five of the ten years between from 1989 to 1999. Recently, from
2010 to 2014, rabid Virginia opossums were reported in New York
City and the states of New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia.

Other small mammals
 
The most commonly infected terrestrial animals in the U.S.A. are
raccoons, skunks, foxes, and coyotes. Any bites by such wild
animals must be considered a possible exposure to the rabies
virus.
 
Most cases of rabies in rodents reported to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention in the U.S.A. have been found
among groundhogs (woodchucks). Small rodents such as squirrels,
hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats, and mice and
lagomorphs like rabbits and hares are almost never found to be
infected with rabies and are not known to transmit rabies to
humans.
 
In the United States, the most commonly reported rabid animal is
the domestic cat. In every year since 1990, reported cases of
rabies in cats have outnumbered cases of rabies in dogs.
