National Zoo panda cam shuts down! Bad idea!
We knew the federal government shutdown would mean going without some things. Getting a passport. Going to a national park. But to deprive us of the the National Zoo’s panda cam just seems cruel — especially at a time when giant panda Mei Xiang’s female, yet-to-be-named cub is nearly 6 weeks old and a wriggling, squealing furball of fun for her mother and for the millions of us watching her.
