Monkey Business

I couldn't help noticing these two stories right after one another having something in common... This is from a CNN news feed:

Paper apologizes for, defends chimp cartoon
A day after publishing a cartoon that drew fire from critics who said it evoked historically racist images, the New York Post apologized in a statement on its Web site -- even as it defended its action and blasted some detractors. Many of those critical of the cartoon said it appeared to compare President Barack Obama to a chimpanzee in a commentary on his recently approved economic stimulus package.

Chimp attack victim moved to Cleveland Clinic
A Connecticut woman attacked Monday by her friend's pet chimpanzee was taken Thursday from a Connecticut hospital to the famed Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, a hospital spokeswoman said. She would not divulge the victim's condition nor the reason for the move.

It's just that they appeared right after each other in my news feed that made me wonder what the president is doing biting people in cartoons?!?
