Enough to pay $5,000 plus airfare to go visit him? That well-known panda-lobbying organization The Friends of the National Zoo is organizing a 10-day trip this fall to China, one that will include a stop at the Bifengxia Wildlife Preserve, home to our beloved Tai Shan. Sure, there’s lots of culture and dining and education and blah blah blah mixed in, but we know what it’s really all about: checking up on Butterstick to make sure he hasn’t been brainwashed by the communists.

Many thanks to Cait Douglas who sent in this image of K Street’s snow art from today. I love that we’re a city that, in addition to the traditional snowman (scarves and hats and all!) will also sculpt some sweet Snow Pandas. That’s right, Butterstick himself in snow form. Bravo, DC. Bravo.
