What’s labeled ‘faux’ should be just that. The origin of this word is French and it's translated to mean “imitation.” Used as an adjective, it most often precedes a noun as a descriptor for an object, event or character that is ‘not the real deal.’ In the case of ‘faux fur,’ a garment can range from every-day wear to haute couture. However, it should not come from a fur-covered animal and if it does, it should never be marketed as ‘faux fur.’ Unfortunately in the case of ‘raccoon dogs’ that is not the case, and definitely a practice that should be banned.

To fill that void, it appears that the Blackish TV comedy star Anthony Anderson is stepping into those big shoes, with his new weekly show, Animal Nation. Like Letterman, its talk-show-variety format is said to celebrate the unusual talents of animals and the folks who love them.
