New zoo review in Palo Alto

It’s a New Zoo Review in Palo Alto, coming right at you.

For only X million dollar, we can replace a yucky old building with a new spiffy one!

Mr. Dingle, the friendly elderly postman, had no comment.

The big baboon by the light of the moon was combing his auburn hair.

The blogosphere had a range of reactions, from freeing the animals to eating them in a dignified ceremony.

Disclosure: at the first Palo Palooza, I claimed that Rufus the Bobcat would be a guest artist, but was just kidding. I thought I was doing a service by even mentioning Rufus the Bobcat. I later approached Rufus to see if there were any hard feeling, and he merely glared, resignedly.

Rufus lives, in our hearts and flat files

A dude named John Adams of all things is the only opposition speaker. He suggested the building proposed is “a monster”.

and1: Gooyer says he took his daughter there, back in the day.

outro:
Ted Nugent, “Cat Scratch Fever” which took me there back in 1977, when I was 14:

didn’t we just, in 2010, spend $450,000 to renovate, especially the cathouse? Yep. Are we so ahistorical that 2010 is not even mentioned here? This is exactly like the staff report on Stevenson House that I felt was fishy that said “this was built in 1964 and now deeds to be rebuilt” rather than the nine or so appropriations for maintenance in recent years.
