That is sad.
We were in Barcalona recently and read about him in all the tourist stuff. We thought about going to the zoo just to see him but we didn't go in the end because I don't really like zoos; it's great to see exotic species close up and in the flesh but I always come away feeling a bit depressed because they are deprived of what makes them so awesome - their wildness and freedom.
But I wish I had gone now.
Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
William Shakespeare (anticipating George W Bush?)
