Note the report in columns 5-6: "50 Monkeys Escape D.C. Cage And Then The Fun Began!"
(The monkeys escaped from the National Institute of Health, the institution that Dr. Fauchi now runs. They were being used for experiments, which, even if I could, I would not describe. For those in the government, media and elsewhere who tell us that the current pandemic could not have escaped from a lab in China, this report should make it clear that if monkeys can escape, so can a virus.

While I was doing the research for this page, I was reminded of a report from Sept. 10, 2021; "DC congresswoman bizarrely denies letting zebras loose." Apparently, several zebras were "released" from captivity, and Delaware democrat congressmenstruator, Eleanor Holmes Norton, felt the need to release a statement denying that she was involved in the incident. While this does not exactly qualify, it is very close to being another example of the Synchronicity Conundrum at work.

Please be aware that I refer to her as congressmenstruator rather than congresswoman out of respect for the democrat from Delaware. I recently learned from congressmenstruator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York that women are offended by being called women. She referred to them as menstruating persons. Therefore I will defer to the congressmenstruator from New York on this subject.)
