PANDAS AND POLITICS

In light of a tentative agreement with the Chinese government, it appears that the giant pandas Le Le and Ya Ya will be coming to the Memhis Zoo's China exhibit after all, perhaps even as early as January. Noting that Chinese resident Jiang Zemin will be visiting President George W. Bush's ranch in October, former Senator Jim Sasser has been quoted as saying, "The Chinese always like to put some good news out in advance of a visit," thus explaining Taiwan's ongoing no-good-news-is-good-news policy.
