A Humboldt penguin escaped from a zoo in Japan, and people were reporting sightings Monday in a river in Tokyo. The 1-year-old penguin managed to climb over a rock wall that is twice its size. Zoo officials don’t believe they can recapture the penguin if it’s swimming, but if it rests somewhere, they believe they can grab it.

As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show.” – AOL statement on its Facebook page Monday. The company became the eighth sponsor to drop advertising on Limbaugh’s show after he called a law student a “slut” and “prostitute” because she was going to testify in Congress about birth control.
