Working for zoos and museums, I get this attitude from animal fanciers often...one of my favorites was a herper who flipped out and started swearing because a rattlesnake cage didn't have a water dish...I let him go on and on...then pointed to the sign above the cage that stated:"animal not on display"
Those in glass houses...etc.
cthulhu77 said:Good point...I am forever harping and harping at the executive staff to let the public see more of the "gritty" details...unfortunately, here at least, they seem to have some Disneyfied brain material, and want everything slick and neat...
Personally, I think it makes the treatment of the public somewhat like acting like they are all little children...not all that wonderful...

true, but we're not trying to keep a giant squid alive nor do we inflict ND on all and sundry!!!!!!cthulhu77 said:Dr SOS seems to have a worse time of it though...we should all send him some positive energy!
