National Geographic is my favorite site on the internet. There is always new and interesting information being presented on a variety of subjects, ranging from space exploration to wildlife to archaeology and cultural history. Beautiful photographs act as visual aids to many of the articles, and sometimes are the stories themselves. In addition, the site offers great links to lots of other informative sites where you can further explore whatever interests you. I peruse the National Geographic daily for enticing bits of information which open my mind to new possibilities and sometimes even inspire a story idea or two.
Today I read an article about the re-discovery of the pygmy elephant, previously thought to be extinct.
Is it true that John McCain is trying to soften his image by getting this pygmy pachyderm to attend the Republican Convention?
