Atlanta = Den Of Ursine Iniquity?
Coincidence???? We think not. Consider the evidence.
Item One: proprietor of little "l" libertarian Blog disappears for a protracted period of time.
Item Two: Seamy stories begin to filter out of the Hotlanta Metropolitan Area. Baby pandas photographed stretched out flat on their bellies, so inebriated they can barely walk:
Zoo Atlanta’s 99-day-old giant panda cub rose on four shaky legs Thursday morning and took a few tentative steps — a first for the youngster.
She wobbled like a drunk in a windstorm, but there was no mistaking her intentions: She’s ready to move on her own, nearly in time for her naming ceremony.
Disgraceful. The poor thing doesn't even have a proper name yet and she's already hitting the sauce. And with a start like this, is it any surprise she's confused?
Children sang and performers put on a lively dance Friday as Zoo Atlanta unveiled the name of the nation's newest panda cub - Mei Lan, a 12-pound ball of adorableness too young to attend the hoopla.
Chengdu Director Zhang Zhihe said Mei Lan, pronounced "may-lan," has male overtones, a gift Chinese parents bestow on female children whom they want to step outside traditional roles for women.
Now wait just one cotton-picking minute... I thought Atlanta was a family town? But it gets worse:
Lun Lun [the mother] was inseminated in March through a new process that aims to get a nearly pure ... sample from a male panda using massage, zoo officials said.
O-kay... we are not going to think about that one too hard.
Just what is going on down there, anyway?
"Little Peach" indeed....
