Our stars, is there a lot of talk about small woodland creatures today! First, Monica Eng is all over raccoons, supplementing the Trib’s article on their popularity - she takes a trip, skinned ‘coon in hand, to Moto, where Homaru Cantu does something weird, brilliant and delicious with it.

Squirrels! Popcorn machines! For that matter, college! (He went to college?) Oh my. Have a politically active weekend.
