McLean Not a Sundown Town for Black Squirrels
My stepson, who is as smart as he is curious, did a bit of research about the lack of black squirrels in McLean. It turns out, black squirrels are not indigenous to the area -- they are escapees from the National Zoo. According to a 2005 article in the Washington Post -- from which this graphic is taken -- a few have been spotted in Arlington -- brave swimmers across the Potomac. But I don't think they swam. I think they "slugged" themselves across the river.
