Unbearable news out of Harvard: Pooh's house to be torn down

Sad PoohRoving UHub reporter Charles Bahne stumbled across some distressing news by the Harvard Science Center today:

The tree that has served as Winnie the Pooh's home for many years is scheduled to be cut down tomorrow.

Bahne reports an official looking sign - complete with an official Harvard University seal - says the tree's health is "in serious decline" and so requires the tree be taken out. A new tree will be planted in its place, but, of course, it won't have enough room for a small bear for quite some time.

    I take it back - this doesn't

    I take it back - this doesn't interest me at all. Some setup of Pooh signs someone contrived to place over the years near the Science building? Puh-lease!

    I hadn't had time to follow the background story link earlier.

    I was concerned because I thought it was about the Pooh tree on a side street in the general vicinity of Porter Square.
