Australian animals

News hit the wires yesterday that a kangaroo was sighted in central Indiana. Sadly, the marsupial died because of the tranquilizer dart used for its capture. One observer had mistaken it for a 'huge rabbit.' I'm not sure whether this is funny or disturbing.

When I was in college in central Ohio, I saw an emu ambling through campus. Now, it was in the middle of a rigorous round of frisbee golf so I may have been imagining things. However, it turned out there was a nearby emu farm that had lost one of the flightless birds.

Also, no cicadas yet in Uptown.
