Nation pauses for llamas on the lam

There are certain times in the news business that define us as a people.

At this hour — and I don’t know how long this feed will be up — the nation has stopped what it’s doing to watch llamas being chased in West Phoenix.

I’m not saying it’s good; I’m not saying it’s bad. I’m just saying it’s America.

Here’s another feed.

Update 2:26 p.m.– It’s over. The remaining llama has been lassoed.

Over to you, Twitter for the post-escape analysis:
