A few weeks ago, in my northwest Washington D.C. neighborhood, I witnessed a most curious motorcade driving down Connecticut Avenue, transporting what appeared to be a very large crate. It turns out that “Spike,” the National Zoo’s new Asian elephant, was being delivered to his new home

Today, instead of a zoo, the nation will be treated to a circus, as Mark Zuckerberg appears before Congress to testify about, ahem, irregularities at Facebook.

There are serious and important to be asked and answered regarding privacy and what Facebook has really been up to all along.  But what I’m really curious about is . . . which of these spectacles will produce the most manure?
