Not really an update...

We arrived in Kansas City Sunday night safe and sound, after a long and mostly enjoyable series of train rides. I'll post a more detailed update on both the trains, and the stuff we've been doing since then, later.

Meanwhile, two animal stories:

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/08/magazine/08elephant.html
Elephant societies, and some of the issues that are effecting them right now. Fascinating stuff. (via rm)

And via cmpriest,

http://www.king5.com/localnews/stories/NW_100906WABpetstore_rewardSW.1ff60ef9.html
Awful story of what some fuckwits monsters vile, miserable excuses for human beings did to a bunch of petstore animals.

More importantly, places to donate to help out the animals that lived through it:

http://www.sersale.org/newns.htm
http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/WA40.html

There's apparently a $5k reward for info leading to the asswipes that did it. I hope that they're found quickly, and that they have the worst possible experiences as a result of their actions.
