Re: the last sentence of the NY Times article: web of life . . . or web of death? Ick. But I know that spiders are a good thing. Fewer mosquitoes is reason enough to cheer. But I wouldn’t want those webs in my garden.
There was a story a week or two back on the news here in the Maritimes about a hummingbird having been caught in a spider’s web–and eaten. Yeeesh. Shelob’s or Aragog’s children must be on the march.

I’m totally with the Ranters on this one. This makes me very, very happy too.
I am very very happy that spider web isn’t here.
That is completely awesome!
