Crazy week at the day job, so the only a few items. And I have two of them because they were sent my way by The Brother.

From the Smithsonian comes an article about the history of a failed attempt to import hippos to the US to be low-cost meat. Kind of reminds me when the US Army experimented with camels for working in the Southwest back in the 1840s.

From the Internet Archive comes an old Army fact sheet on fascism.

Lastly, one of the local stations has an article on USF being admitted to the American Association of Universities. Yay, we have a new Ivy League school. Sorry, just can’t get up the requisite enthusiasm for my alma mater.
