I was trying out a new search engine,
(which allows you to easily exclude the top N websites) and while trying it out,
I came across this:
There are a few towns in the US, though, that have very high
numbers of white squirrels. This could be for a few reasons.
First, predators in towns tend to be low. This cancels out the
negative selection against the white morph. Sometimes in towns, a
few neighbors will also select against the normal coloration of
eastern grey squirrel. Yes, that happens. After a few generations,
all you get are whites, and they can spread to the rest of the town!

- Marionville, MO (read)
- Brevard, NC
- Olney, Il
- Kenton, TN
- Exeter, Ontario Canada (web)
and Albino Squirrel Phenomenon + New US Maps!
It's interesting that there are quite a few “Home of the White Squirrel” across the country.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
