The Mammoth Site in Hot Springs recently yielded the remains of a 60th mammoth, the giant, extinct creatures that once roamed the continent.
[just a teaser--AP story]

Home town story ping.
Wow ,extinct because they thought like democrats do,all walking into the same pit!
When are they going to clone the darn things then!
Sounds lik a mammoth undertaking.
Helen Thomas used to ride them.
Not until they have the slaughterhouses & marketing in place.
Mammoth Burger franchises, anyone?
Wonder if the RINOS led them into it?
A very unfriendly place for families. The kids really wanted to see. And we did, last April. Called them as to their hours-—10 AM to 6 PM. Arrived 4:25 PM—CLOSED!
Called again and left a message: Could we come at 10 AM next morning? Sent an email. NO reply. Arrived 10 AM next day. CLOSED!
The walkway signs/exhibits suggest they have an evolutionist perspective, but are trying to tread carefully.
Can’t imagine why they are trying to make a profit and so obnoxious to travelers.
Who cares. Send every reader off to search and see how many “Hot Springs” locations there are that google knows about.
What happened to journalism? It used to be a profession.

My daughter worked there last summer in the bone pit, the lab and the gift shop.
This summer she dug 1,200 year old human remains a 12,000 feet in Peru.
Who knows what bones she’ll be digging next year!
To your larger question, professional journalism has been replaced with “folksy journalism”, and has had added the twin banes of Advocacy Journalism and “citizen journalism”.
All three are more interested in conveying viewpoint and ‘narrative’, rather than clearly, concisely and coherently transmitting information.

I thought: Hot Springs, Arkansas.
They cannot clone them because it is now illegal to make a poor animal stay in a cage at a zoo.
Oh how cool! When I was a little girl, if people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I’d say “paleoanthropologist!” Graphic design didn’t turn out to be nearly as interesting.
“Wonder if the RINOS led them into it?”
LOL, I am sure digging around you will find something Like McCain (in better shape though)and Bush.
