An elephant seal never forgets Valentine's Day

On February 4th the cartoon header for News from ME changed to the one where Mark is eating at the keyboard. Sometime today it changed to the Valentine's Day one where Mark is typing at the keyboard, shot in the back by four of Cupid's heart-flecked arrows. This one probably shows up on Valentine's Day every year, but it was up at least in March 2020.

I was at Piedras Blancas today and fittingly there were many loving embraces between elephant seal bulls and cows, sprinkled with the occasional squeals of a calf being crushed by a bull.
