Meet the slime beetles - bushi, cheneyi and rumsfeldi

Here's a honor for team Bush that seems well deserved. Three different species of slime beetles have been named afer Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

Quentin Wheeler keeper and head of entomology at the Natural History Museum in London, who bestowed these honors, said the U.S. leaders were being honored for having "the courage of their convictions."

Hard to know what he meant by that when he named them after insects that feed on rotting fungi but anything associated with slime feels like an appropriate tribute to me.
