From today's story on the death of the zoo's last polar bear, Hope, which died Monday of liver cancer at the age of 23.

Stltoday.com reader Robert Walsh wonders: "Without any polar bears, how will the Post-Dispatch illustrate its story on our first 100-degree day this summer?"

You're right, Robert. That does provide a quandary.

Honorable Mention goes to John F.  Appraised of the latest death at the zoo, John F. suggests, "Maybe the Zoo should look into hiring a full time taxidermist."

Ouch!

The dead polar bear does raise the question: How does one dispose of an 800-pound mammal? I tried to ask the zoo that question a few year's back after the death of another polar bear. The zoo declined to comment.
