The famous zebra that recently escaped from a circus and proudly paced on a downtown Atlanta interstate at rush hour (in Zebra, it's called a free-way) underwent euthanasia last week; its unshod hoofs were incurably damaged. Now, when we hear hoof beats, we will have even less reason to think zebras . . . .
