he's a cutie. I kinda hope nobody else finds it, though. idiots would probably stick it in an aquarium.

considering they mentioned a previous ribbon seal that people put in a tank and it died... so yeah. they probably would. people are friggin' stupid.

granted, this is probably sarcasm on your part, but I haven't had enough coffee yet to recognize it, so. yeah.

I did read it was found in california, I didn't see it say when. but it still wouldn't surprise me if it ended up in a tank. he's cute, I can totally see people thinking 'oh, we can draw in a lot of money at the aquarium. let's catch him.'

regardless of whether that would actually happen or not, I do maintain that I hope he's already left and rejoined his little group of seals.

No, It wasn't. The Orca Network is looking for information on the seal to make sure it's safe, and they are an amazing protective organization. They would not it in an aquarium.

And again, that's not really how things work in Washington in recent years, at all.

then good, if recent Washington is different. my opinion still stands, though. I don't think highly of people as a whole.

That's very sad for you, because a lot of people do wonderful things.

yes, they do, and it's lovely when they do. especially if it makes the news.

but taken as a whole, I think people are very selfish and self centered.

I saw the picture a few days ago, squee-ed, then left the image up on the computer so every time I'd walk by I could see it. Sooooooooooooooo cute!
