Slow News Day?

What happened today? Pres. Bush issues his first veto banning the expansion of stem cell research, the war in Iraq continues, Israel is in full war mode against Hezbollah in Lebanon, and American Floyd Landis, a Mennonite riding for the Phonak team, lost the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. What major stories were carried by the Chicago Sun-Times today? While they did write about life and death, it was life and death of animals. For life, a female Beluga whale at the Shedd Aquarium has given birth for the second time and so far, things look good for the baby whale. And for death, they had an obituary for a Capuchin monkey that lived at the Animal Kingdom on the northwest side of the city. He worked as an organ grinder and loved thin crust pepperoni pizza. Capuchin don't normally live more than 8 years in the wild or 18 years in captivity. Chico was 36 years old.
