Pairs Well With (No. 1)
The zoo makes such a great day trip and I recommend getting there
before the end of the month when most of the animals go into hiding
That being said, the zoo is also pretty fantastic in the winter. The
admissions rate is a little lower, and you can walk around the woods
and then duck into the different houses, like Madagascar! and Jungleworld to warm up. It ends up feeling like a mini-vacation and is a
great escape from the brutal weather.
I am not well-versed in animal rights issues, but from what I can
tell, the Bronx Zoo is a respectable organization. I mostly make the
connection between my visit and WAACBO because of my time spent in the Congo Gorilla Forest. It was moving and challenging and I kept thinking back to this book.

'Do you want me to tell you more stories about my cat?' Mr. Ananias asked.

Pretty sure this strategy would work on me.
"Recently a young chaplain at a girls’ college got himself into trouble by preaching a sermon on sex in which he said, among other important things, that sex was fun. Perhaps "fun" was an ill-chosen word, with its suggestions that sex is in a class with tiddlywinks and tennis”
-Evelyn Fiore, with Richard S. Ward, MD, Sex Facts for Teenagers (1971)
*I work at a reproductive health organization, and last year while I was at the Park Slope United Methodist Book Sale (it’s seriously the best! has anyone ever been?), I spotted this book and thought it would be fun to keep on my desk at work. The problem is, it has just sat around collecting dust. The book was written in the early 1970s, and from what I can tell, it was probably pretty progressive for it’s time. Each Thursday I’ll plan to post an excerpt here for fun, but for solid, fact-based information check out Planned Parenthood’s awesome Tumblr.
