Connie Chung Pays $8,000 for Fiberglass Turtle

The former news anchor plans to donate "Testudo the Grad," a fiberglass sculpture of a turtle with a graduation cap on his head, back to the University of Maryland. Less famous people, including the owner of Terrapin Chiropractic, an actual business, bought 29 other turtle sculptures auctioned at a fundraiser yesterday. The sculptures were originally created to celebrate the university's 150th anniversary. Where will all the fiberglass turtles go? "This thing is tailgating with us in the parking lot," one purchaser told the Diamondback.
