Working in Ottawa today --BBQ Penguin
Good morning folks,
I will be working in Ottawa today.
There could be many things to comment on this morning, hockey thugs in Vancouver, Afghanistan, our odd involvement in Libya --don't get me wrong Colonel K is no friend of mine but I am not sure about the legality of bombing a sovereign nation to help out some revolutionaries that our current laws define as terrorists. Have we declared war with Libya?
But one item shines out from the back pages. An Emperor Penguin has reportedly shown up on New Zealand's North Island, some 3200 kilometers from Antarctica. The last time a penguin was seen there was some 44 years ago.
An excellent demonstration of what can be accomplished by a motivated individual. Shame that my first thought was "What do you suppose barbecued penguin tastes like?".
