Memphis Manatee Lives! In Congress, At Least

Posted By on Wed, Mar 21, 2007 at 4:00 AM

In his testimony on global warming before Congress today, former Vice President Al Gore cited the Memphis manatee as evidence to support his contention that the earth is indeed heating up.

"Manatees live in South Florida," said Gore. "One of 'em showed up off Memphis this summer. Yep. First time ever. You ever seen a manatee in Memphis? No. It got too hot in southern Florida. I'm not making this up."

Neither are we. At least, our l'il lost manatee died for a reason.
