Today, Fabulous Furry Friday brings you more Great Moments in History! Today is the 40th anniversary of Richard M. Nixon’s resignation from the presidency, as a result of, well, some really bad stuff he did. But as much as we might like to think otherwise, we do have a few things for which to thank old Tricky Dick , the most important being….
The first “official” pandas that came to live permanently in the USofA
And while we are talking pandas and politics, a faithful reader and supporter sent me a link to this story of a NY Congressional representative who is going trolling for pandas (and perhaps votes?) on the extremely long recess that Congress is now on. Feast your eyes on this editorial on the NYC-Panda question.
And then, of course, the first men walked on the moon during Nixon’s first (and only completed) term:
One step for a small bear….
But the Watergate burglars had nothing on the panda kindergarten!
“What did dey knows, and when did dey knows it?” Fuggedabout da %7^$## tape!
And who says panda satire isn’t educational?
Meanwhile, yet another alert reader told me that today is national Cat Day. frankly, it feels like every day is cat day around my house, but what do I know? Mehitabel is celebrating the day by relaxing with a good book:
What cats are reading at the beach this summer!
Meanwhile, if you haven’t already done so, don’t waste another second without checking out my latest books, Pandamorphosis and The Panda Chronicles Book 4: the Book of Wu! (Mebbe you might want a copy for your very own!)
Well, we’ll see you all next week. Um..is this conversation being taped?
Be the Bear,
Bob T. panda
