Our long national nightmare is over.
Of all resumptions Thursday in rebooted Washington, that of the panda cams, which show a live feed of the zoo’s Mei Xiang, and her cub, was perhaps the most eagerly awaited.
Within 10 minutes, the cameras were maxed out by the panda-starved masses, the zoo said, and connections were being intermittently rejected.
From then on, determined mouse clicking was required to grab one of the 850 viewing slots the cameras can handle at a time, and then only for 15 minutes of oohing and aahing.
Yet another government-run website that isn’t working. Yay.
Pandas. Ugh. Cute, but worse than useless… Part black, part white… Worshipped in inverse proportion to any sort of intrinsic value…
I sure wish I could think of anybody else in Washington like that!
