RIPLooks pleasantly relaxed to me.I am not unequivocally for zoos, but with habitat destruction, climate change, other environmental pressures, and poaching, they are important for helping to preserve threatened and endangered species.Here is an interesting site:IUCN - Threatened Species Red List

QuoteLOS ANGELES (AP) ? Innovative, influential comedy genius Sid Caesar, whose sketches lit up 1950s television with zany humor, has died at age 91.Family spokesman Eddy Friedfeld says Caesar died early Wednesday.Caesar?s two most important programs were ?Your Show of Shows? and ?Caesar?s Hour.? He used them to display his incredible skill in pantomime, satire, mimicry, dialect and sketch comedy.
