I am cooling my heels in the U.S.-segregated part of the Calgary Airport, which fortuitously has a Tim Hortons. I have time for one post after my donut.
From reader Stephen Q. Muth, half of Butter’s staff, we have this item from KOAA5, sent with the note, “Too cute not to pass on.” I suppose it is:
An unnamed clouded leopard cub has made the trip from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute to the Denver Zoo; all for the sake of keeping the species alive.
The cub traveled on a Frontier Airlines flight to DIA over the weekend. It will be paired up with two other clouded leopard cubs, Pi and Rhu, at the zoo. The cubs will soon appear in the Toyota Elephant Passage.
Clouded leopards returned as a species to Denver Zoo in 2011 after a four year absence.
I expect Butter to weigh in below.
And, as lagniappe, a slide from Seth (“The Thinking Atheist”) Andrews’s talk yesterday, which was a lavishly illustrated disquisition about how Christianity blatantly copies and co-opts parts of popular culture, thereby preventing its young adherents from any need to leave their own culture. They’ve ripped off the Starbucks logo!
The reason they don’t get sued (we saw many similar ripoffs) is that no big corporation wants to be seen suing “faith”.
Wait until you see the Testamints!
