Abby thinks I’m a candidate for the “What Not to Wear” show. She says I hide a perfectly nice 58 year old body and don’t need to be dressing in baggy pants or LPZoo Docent shirts. (Yes, LPZ, I had to pay for them, I own them and I wear them with pride.) Anyway, I think she says that tongue-in-cheek and she still has one of those bare-able midriffs. This is just a quick note to say that I thought censorship was passe. I guess not. I guess you aren’t supposed to admonish children to listen to their teachers and get a good education, even if you are the President and you’re not supposed to put a note protesting the end of the docent program on the Lincoln Park Zoo fan page- even if you are one of their biggest fans.
The docent post below received over 490 hits in one day on a holiday weekend. New record around here, that’s for sure. The only post that ever came close was the one about the Moh’s surgery with photos (I have an update photo for you tomorrow!). I’m sure a fair amount of that traffic came by way of the LPZ fan page. But I had a hunch, all weekend, that once the page administrator came back from the long weekend, that post would be toast. Sure enough, this morning it’s been wiped off the page. I guess when you’re a ‘fan’ of something, whether it’s the zoo or a political party, it means lock, stock and barrel. Not critiquing allowed. That’s a shame, isn’t it?
BTW, here’s the link to the fan page. I’m a fan. As zoos go, it’s really a magnificent zoo. You might want to be a fan, too, and tell them how much you like DOCENTS.
