This week’s action packed visit to see good friends in New England had some terrific animal encounters.  Check out the adorable faces from the Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA.

We fell in love with the baby Vietnamese pot-belied pigs and think you will too.

The day before Christmas is filled with frenzy and some panic for the people who celebrate this important date. Do you have enough gifts? Will the black ice now on the ground melt? Did you send everyone a card? When will you go back on you diet? Holiday food and goodies are a killer. Why is your gym closed on Christmas Day? Will the line for the movie you want to see be huge? Should you buy your ticket in advance? Will you ever get to see all of those movies? Why do they cram them all in at the end of the year? Tomorrow will be the Second Annual Installment of Lobo’s ‘What’s a Jew to do on Christmas day?’ For today enjoy these tongue in cheek photos and a very funny video.

r7oarThe Minnesota Senate race is ongoing. The recount is finished but the challenges drag on. Once again, the courts might be the final decision in this battle. Norm Coleman is up in the count but Al Franken is up in the challenges and also up in the count Huh? Stay tuned. Here is what my guy, Nate Silver has to say on the topic.

–  In a karmic smile we salute Eric Shinseki, who tomorrow will be named Obama’s nominee for Veterans Affairs Secretary. Shinseki was fired by the Bush thugs for his stance on the Iraq War.

–  According to Frank Rich, The Brightest are not always the Best. Another great piece by the master.

– For a moment of lightness. Check out the late night jokes of the week.

– A word about Sunny von Bulow. As you know, she died in a Manhattan nursing home yesterday after 28 years in a coma. A multimillionaire born to parents who had a shoe fortune and ran an electric company respectively, the events leading up to her coma triggered charges against her second husband for attempted murder and would create the setting for trials that were media spectacles in the ’80s when Claus von Bulow was convicted and but later acquitted in a retrial for poisoning his wife. Those trials along with the battle among her stepchildren over Mrs. von Bulow’s riches would inspire the movie Reversal of Fortune starring Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close. Mrs. von Bulow attended the Chapin School in Manhattan many years ago and is survived by three daughters, a son and five grandchildren. May she finally rest in peace.

–  Let’s hope that we can now close the book on this piece of human crap:

–  A winter visit to the Bronx Zoo is always filled with surprises. I spent much of my time watching the adorable six month old sea lion pup, Katy. I had so many photos it cried out for two montages and a new video. Enjoy!

–  Smile for the day. Watch my Katy the sea lion pup play with a leaf:

clokThe nightmare in Moombai continues. We were lucky enough to stay at the century old Taj Mahal Hotel when we went to India and fell in love with that beautiful county. I can only imagine the terror and ager that this bustling city that we used to call Bombay is undergoing. It is startling to think that a handful of angry young men with fairly unsophisticated weapons and cell phones can keep a city hostage. Get ready for metal detectors at all hotels soon. They are soft targets and certainly cannot afford to lose the tourist business in any city.

– The issue to investigate the Bush administration and torture is making the rounds. More thoughtful heads are entering the discussion. Can this issue be whitewashed with a commission. Read this thorough overview on some of the things that can evolve in this issue.
– It is Black Friday. I have never gone shopping on this nutty day and never will. Good luck to al out there who are hitting the stores. I do admit to enjoy watching the Nightly news when inevitably they will show the stampede of shoppers as the doors open and somebody getting trampled in the frenzy. It goes something like this:

And this hysterical one:

– I will go to work at the Central park Zoo today like I have been doing for the past 18 years. It is one of our more crowded days filled with tourists, families and zoo lovers. Come on over.

– This is what I will be doing today instead of shopping:

– Here is Rachel Maddow with some Thanksgiving thoughts:

– For the Vegans out there:
