Government authorities in Zimbabwe are beginning to clamor for Walter Palmer's extradition.
Cecil the lion and his alleged killer, Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer.
Via the Star Tribune:
“This is pure poaching,” Chibuwe (deputy chief of mission at Zimbabwe’s embassy in Washington, D.C.,) said. “The guys knew exactly what they were doing. There is absolutely no excuse for what they did.”
Calls from ordinary Americans as well as Zimbabwe nationals expressing outrage over the lion’s killing have been pouring into the embassy, Chibuwe said, and staff are trying to answer as many of the calls as they can.

Chibuwe said he doesn’t think the extradition process has been initiated yet, and that it likely would be handled between the two countries’ justice departments.

It's pretty much perfect. (via Beyond the […]

However, you’ve probably discovered that high-end footwear almost always comes with eye-popping price tags. You’ve got to compromise on second-hand or just suck it up and take out a […]
We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
Remember when the default state of your online presence was anonymity? That’s not so clear-cut anymore, and the worst part is you may not even know who is using your data or what they’re using it for.
