[Vision2020] Weapons of mass dinosaurs
Mon, 18 Aug 2003 09:13:29 -0700
My son, who is three and something of an expert on dinosaur identification,
pointed that cover out to me: "Look," he said, "They are trying to kill
that Coelophysis. Why can't they leave it alone?"
Rosauers has a tabloid- and candy-free aisle, and I'd love to see every
grocery in town follow suit . . .
shopping is agony enough without adding the task of trying to calm an
outraged dinosaur-rights activist who doesn't yet know the difference
between a drawing and a photograph.

Go, said the bird, for the leaves were full of children,
Hidden excitedly, containing laughter.
Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind
Cannot bear very much reality.
