Every once in a while, in the midst of reports about battles and budgets, the newspapers carry a really cheerful story. Today that story was about the tiny frogs that are being reestablished at the San Francisco Zoo. These miniature creatures now inhabit the shrubbery around the zoo, finally returning to the western part of the city after having disappeared for more than 50 years. Most of us will never see them but if we are patient, we may hear them in 2009 when they will be ready to head for the water and breed. Then the chirping sound of hundreds of frogs will be a sign that our tiny friends have returned to stay. Welcome home, frogs!
