Happy Veterans Day, to all you humans and bears alike. From deadlinenews.com:
A BEAR renowned for its help in some of the most significant battles of the Second World War is to have a Hollywood film made about him.
Wojtek, a Syrian brown bear who drank two bottles of beer a day, fought alongside Polish soldiers during the war before spending his final years at Edinburgh zoo. (continue reading…)
100 years ago Teddy Roosevelt, shown here in what is surely a historically accurate picture, was shot in the chest at close range by deranged saloon keeper John Schrank. He went on stage anyway and spoke for an hour before being rushed to the hospital. During the speech he famously said “You see, it takes more than one bullet to kill a Bull Moose” providing what became the nickname for the progressive party and himself in the years that followed.
