Hopefully protection will be better now than the Birds of Paradise at the time (you often see them in glass boxes, stuffed sitting on branches, at people's homes).

Fascinating. I wonder why I haven't seen more coverage in the US (I subscribe to both the New York Times and the Washington Post, and CNN is my home page).

Probably I'm either not reading thoroughly enough, or there's too much else happening.
