Who's Having a Worse Day: American Airlines or the Dallas Zoo?

Methinks our pal Tim Wagner's day just got a little bit longer, as the Associated Press noted moments ago that the Federal Aviation Administration has fined American Airlines $7 million for "safety and drug-testing violations." Update: Here's the FAA's media release detailing the reasons for the penalties.

And the Dallas Zoo, already up to its bananas in Jenny protesters, has more bad news today, as KDFW-Channel 4 is reporting that Hercules, a 43-year-old gorilla at the zoo, has died of an apparent heart attack. Time to redo this tee, I guess. --Robert Wilonsky
