Today's Observer

I can't say I like the review by Damien Da Costa of Central Park in the Dark in today's New York Observer. It isn't really negative.It's just sneery and snide about nature lovers in general . The headline tells all:
A Nerdwatcher's Guide: Beware the Slug-Sex Crowd!

Among those Mr. Da Costa includes in the Nerd category: bird-watchers,, lepidopterists, mammalogists and even malacologists [He feels inordinately proud of himself for knowing that the latter word means slug scientists]

Well, you can't win 'em all.
