Flat Earth: Wild and woolly

ALSO from the New York Times, we learn that Americans, after trying to exterminate the species for three centuries, have now fallen in love with the wolf. You may for dollars 20 sponsor one of the creatures at the Idaho Wolf Education Center and receive a certificate with a photograph of your chosen wolf. So meet Motomo: 'a lovely, even- tempered, jet black wolf with big feet and a big heart'. 'All the better,' intones the Times, 'to love you with.'
