Lions and leopards and kittens, oh my (CS)

Amazing news fromt he world of big cats (and sad news from the world of small ones) as one set saves a little girl's life and another is defeated by an old man using HIS BARE HANDS.
I find the story of the African man taking out the leopard particularly interesting. It reminds me of a piece of news i once read about an Icelandic man who killed a shark by wading into the water, dragging it to shore, and then stabbing it with his knife. Now that is hard.

I love these stories cuz it reminds me that there's a bit of something we've certainly lost since the days we actually had to DO things to get by. In Africa a 73 year old man DROPS his machete in order to kill a leopard (talk about will to power...). Meanwhile, tonight at the movie theater, the masses of people there were crippled into frustration and confusion when the Fandango machines went down. Thank you modern "convenience."

A friend of mine pointed out that it would be a bit blind to not point how in this modern world apparantly Ethiopians can drag off and beat 12 year olds for marriage. We know this, but no one will care until some Ethiopian terrorist attacks us. We certainly didn't care when they were invaded and taken by Mussolini. Who cares about Africa? Just look at the Sudan.

Ethiopia has also apparantly reduced the population of its national symbol to incredibly low numbers. A page right out of our book, eh?
