Good News About Butterstick

From this morning's Washington Post:

The National Zoo said yesterday that it is negotiating with China to keep its popular baby panda beyond the expected two years.

The zoo said on its Web site that Tai Shan was supposed to be sent to China sometime after he turns 2.

However, the zoo said, "we expect that the cub will, at a minimum, be here throughout the summer and early fall."

Excellent. That will extend our chance to free the poor thing.

How big is the little darling now? Because when he gets full-size, he'll just be another panda. Boring.
