I haven’t talked about my penguin fetish, which began in 1964 when I wrote a term paper on penguins for my junior-high biology class. I still have the paper:
And I’m still enamored with Antarctic flightless birds. Here’s the top of my hard drive:
So I was very jealous to see a video taken on a March 12 Southwest Airlines flight, showing a penguin that had been deliberately released in the aisle to get some exercise. The flight was taking the penguin from San Francisco to San Diego to appear at a convention (he’s already wearing his tux). Notice how the features of the penguin are described on the intercom. This is why I love Southwest. Would I had been on that flight!
