down under on the blue danube

reader laura newton sends us this sad story about one of our cousins who was killed by a hit and run in vienna, austria...

vienna, austria -- the carcass of an australian kangaroo was discovered near the town of steyr, 100 miles west of here, police say. the animal -- the pet of a private owner -- had apparently escaped from its cage before hopping onto a road where it was hit by a car.

the driver then sped away, leaving the poor pet owner inconsolable.

we kangaroos mourn for our fallen comrade...we hope he's hopping to a strauss waltz somewhere in heaven now.
