Indiana Jones at the Zoo
It was hotter than the Sumatran jungle in Woodley Park for yesterday's unveiling of the National Zoo's latest animal exhibit.
Two hundred dignitaries waited, fanning and mopping themselves, as the creature approached. It cocked its head and looked warily at the spectators, revealing its silver mane and the scar beneath its mouth. It sat on its haunches, and its eyes darted as the cameras flashed. Then it put on reading glasses and it spoke.
"Thank you very much," the familiar, manly monotone of Harrison Ford pronounced. The "Indiana Jones" star held forth for all of a minute and 20 seconds. "Distinguished guests," he concluded, "I thank you for your commitment to tigers."
