baby giant panda has been born to the two pandas, Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, on loan to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. While this might not mean much to any of you reading this, as someone who grew up inside the beltway, "panda watch" was the community obsession. We love our pandas! We mourn when they roll over and accidently kill their young. So say a prayer that this little one (picture is not the actual cub, btw, nor did I take this picture) manages to make it at least to toddler-hood.
