The GW hippo survives
Reports of the George Washingto University hippo mascot’s death have been greatly exaggerated. The GW administration is saying everything was a misunderstanding, although some GW students remain suspicious of a cover-up. Whatever’s going on in Foggy Bottom, the hippo lives.
Speaking of hippos, last weekend I went to the National Zoo and saw its hippo. The hippo’s on its way out, but if you go soon you can see it up-close in the Elephant House. Pretty good deal, especially if the pandas are bashful.
