We are aghast as the harrowing journey, based on a true story, thrashes our sensibilities.

Now, it bears informing that much of what followed is uncertain in its details, and will imminently be thoroughly investigated by a panel of independent chipmunks. But it's definitely a conspiracy meant to undermine the peace, tranquility and high-minded principles that have long comprised the noble doctrine cherished and adhered to by my backyard's fauna.

After several decades trying to unravel the conundrum that la difference poses, I've come to accede that being in a total muddle about this subject is key to our evolutionary survival.
