Orangutans, extinct trees, dead horses and popcorn

I'm on deadline, so I'll keep my intro to this week's stories brief:

Both of this week's Extinction Countdown stories were fun to report:

2 Trees Twice Thought to Be Extinct Rediscovered in Tanzania

Ecotourism Does Not Overly Stress Orangutans, Study Finds

As always, Mother Nature Network gave me a wide range of stories to write about this week:

Senator launches investigation into PTSD treatment denials by military hospitals

Popcorn may be healthier than some fruits and vegetables

Drugged and endangered: Horse racing fatalities and injuries on the rise

Park Slope Food Co-op declines to vote on proposed boycott of Israeli products

And Green Hands USA lets me blog about good ways you can go green:

Lights Out: Celebrate Earth Hour This Weekend  [Whoops, ya missed it.]

I turned in a new feature article on Friday, with two more due this week and a fourth getting started. Maybe a fifth if the contract comes through. But I'll be keeping up the usual articles as SA, MNN, etc, so follow me on Twitter for the links as they happen.
