Give Lemmings a Break


I keep hearing about people being like lemmings. I say, give lemmings a break! They do not, in fact commit mass suicide just because their leaders tell them to. Please remember that lemmings are mammals … they can swim. And they can scale sheer cliffs by walking down forwards. In the far northern isles where this species is abundant, historic migration routes sometimes require the swimming of a narrow channel en mass. Imagine caribou. Same thing.

    I ask everyone to follow me down the path that refuses to become a lemming apoligizer.
