The National Zoo Finds "Rusty," the Red Panda It Lost Last Night

Unlike with the giant panda, Slate has no official editorial opinion about the red panda. That may change, however, if Rusty wanders into our Dupont office this afternoon.

Update at 2:30 p.m.: Rusty's been found.

Josh Voorhees is a Slate senior writer. He lives in Iowa City.
