Inside Report (9)
FOOTNOTE: Last week's "Inside Report" included an item about Neiman-Marcus offering baby ostriches (at $1,500 a pair) for Christmas. Since then, IR has learned that the US Humane Society has swooped down on N-M with a protest. Ostriches are "violent," the society warns; further, most zoos won't be interested in adopting the feathered pair after they grow up to their 300-pound potential. The society's alternative idea: make a donation to a local zoo.
