Oh, how lovely! I think pangolins are among the most beautiful, strange and delightful creatures. The little guy is so cute, and mama is too. Congratulations to Taipei Zoo, and good job caring for this adorable new family.

About Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, I am sure they beg for money from supporters, either for political campaigns or other projects. But I do not recall any instances of either of them, or any other leftish activist/political figure, selling the mailing lists of their supporters to "One Weird Trick to Beat Cancer!" and "Fabulous Investment Opportunity the IRS Hates!" hucksters. All activists and politicians ask for financial support from likeminded others. I don't really see that as grifting or scamming. It's the monetizing of their supporters that makes me see the right-wingers as scam artists.

I'm lucky, in that all the places I've ever spent much time in away from home (Japan, France, Italy) have cuisines I adore. But if I'm away from New York City long enough, I start to yearn for old-time Jewish deli food - pastrami, half-sour pickles, lox and cream cheese.
