I thought some of the members of this community might find humor in a blurb from this morning's Investor's Business Daily:

Swiss sheep are getting hightech collars to protect them from wolves. Instead of relying on sheepdogs, which are costly to train and maintain, European researchers have developed a collar that will send a text message to the shepherd if an attack is imminent. The collar measures the sheep’s heart rate,which will spike when a wolf is present. Field trials with the collar will take place this fall.
The way some of our intelligentsia look abroad for inspiration it may be proposed in Congress tomorrow. Remember you heard it here first.
