Oh, Thank Heavens - The Pandas Can Stay

Well, we gave a state dinner to the dictator of a country that doesn't allow free speech, jails dissenters, approves of forced abortions, jails the Nobel peace prize winner, and too many other abuses to mention, but we can keep the Pandas at the National Zoo.  That makes it all worthwhile.

Mei Xiang and Tian Tian

The Chinese and American people work together and create new opportunities together every single day. Mr. President, today we’ve shown that our governments can work together as well, for our mutual benefit. And that includes this bit of news -— under a new agreement, our National Zoo will continue to dazzle children and visitors with the beloved giant pandas.
