Shanghai Zoo going all soft
China Daily | Submitted by: superduperabdul
"A Shanghai zoo is updating information boards outside cages and pens to replace phrases like 'Meat is edible', 'Fur can be used' and 'Evil animal' with cuddlier ones such as 'Please be nice to me'... 'We hope in this way more visitors will look at the animals with tenderness and affection, not as if they were merely resources for human use', said zoo official Tang Jirong, who is in charge of the revamp."

Times | Submitted by: tjd
"Christopher Taylor, a vet at the scene, said that there was no bad blood between the two men. 'Mr Smart made a jokey comment to Mr Hubbard', Mr Taylor said.

Philadelphia Inquirer | Submitted by: JuTravler
"Mafalda Graci died peacefully in her sleep at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, so relatives were horrified when she arrived at the funeral home with deep gashes on her face that made it look as if she had been severely beaten... Relative Kathleen Clery, 51, said the family was unaware of Graci's maiming until an undertaker at the Donohue Funeral Home in Downingtown suggested that the family might want to reconsider its wish to have an open-casket funeral."

Looters trade priceless artifact for stereo
The Scotsman | Submitted by: sl0ppy
"Two amateur treasure hunters who sold bronze age artefacts found on a mountainside to buy a stereo system have stumbled upon one of the greatest archaeological finds in history, writes Allan Hall in Berlin... This shows Europeans had a rudimentary knowledge of the solar system and its influence on our lives far earlier than previously thought. Harald Meller, an archaeologist, said: 'This ranks as one of the 20 most important finds of all time, up there with the tomb of Tutankhamun and the discovery of Otzi the iceman in the Alps.'"

The Library of Congress run by thieves
Los Angeles Times | Submitted by: JaeComan
Federal officials seized (pages of a book written by Ayn Rand) after Lenoard Peikoff joked that he "stole" them from the Library of Congress. Peikoff, a writer and philosopher, was a lifelong friend of Rand... and the heir to her works. "Ayn Rand, I feel sure, would have said: 'The whole case is another outrage by looting bureaucrats so drunk with power that they must possess and flaunt even the very pages in which I have denounced them,'" Peikoff said.

Bush Adminstration Dumbfounded Over Iraq
New Yorker | Submitted by: Walker LeRocque
Right-wing hawks in the Defense Department, supported by the Bush Administration, are conducting a massive media mudslinging campaign against the State Department's alledged left-wing wimpiness over The Iraqi Dilemma. Seymour Hersh's eye-popping expose on the Cabinet's internal strife, and subesquent inability to compose a solution to Saddam, will show that Bush II is not in complete control of the White House; that America's absurb fascination with Israel is potentially deadly, and that the mainstream media refuses to deal with these Real Stories. Best you drop the remote Amerika and learn how to read. Res Ipsa Loquitor.
