I Sit On the Couch, It Seems to Breathe

Newslinks, some fresh, some stale:

Check out this article about Sean Stewart, "lanky father of two with an intense, steady stare."

Zimbabwe: Crocs 13, Elephants 12.

In North Bengal it's worse; 50 people a year are killed in man-elephant conflicts. GPS tracking is being used to anticipate elephant migration, and hopefully warn of attacks.

After last year's tsunami, the Sri Lankan government began a huge community reconstruction project. Unfortunately for both the animals and the new homeowners, some of those houses were built in elephant territory.

A while ago I blogged about the Chicago City Council's motion to mandate for a minimum space requirement for elephants within the city, which is still pending; now Los Angeles is dealing with the same problem.

In Kenya, President Kwai Mibaki's leadership is being called into question following the rocky formation of his new cabinet.

(Speaking of Kenya, this is just as catchy as Magical Trevor.)

Finally, "Arrested Development" might not be dead after all. Hope hope hope hope.
