Dateline – September 7, 2010, South San Francisco
Despite the fact that I have a face made for radio, I am called on for an occasional TV spot discussing the quest for 1000 species and beyond. WFN just did such an interview with me and WFN News Host Jim Van Horne, filmed at Hi’s Tackle in South San Francisco. (Thanks to owner Jonah Li for offering up his location.) It went on television last night – I was hoping it would pre-empt a showing of “Heidi,” but no such luck. If you’re interested, and if you’re not my Mom you probably aren’t, but if you are, you can view it here –
These are the same guys who put me on TV a couple of years ago on the “Fins and Skins” program with Henry Waszczuk. (Pronounced “Cleveland.”) Anybody with two z’s in their last name is cool by me. And he’s Polish, but you probably already figured that out.
The British tabloid furor seems to have calmed down, although Eileen is still demanding I be brought up on charges by somebody for something. Hedge Witch remains silent, although I swear I heard her fly over last night. (It also could have been a swan with colic.) Hopefully, she’ll be busy with the new term at Hogwarts and won’t have time for me. Mercifully, the Daily News cut off comments before the abuse could continue – it was starting to feel like a family holiday.
