A couple of things have come through and I would be remiss in not sharing them.
My-Friend-the-Lawyer (who is diligently studying for the bar exam in the reading room at NYPL--oh the jealousy) sent me this interesting story:
Mcdonald's Changes Lids to Save German Hedgehogs
while looking for Boy Lobbies City to Get Hedgehog Ownership Permitted
(Now if they'd just approve hedgehogs in NYC, life would be perfect!)
Just to confirm, yes I've heard about The Hedgehog's Dilemma [and no, it's not a book entirely about my hair and the issues I have with it each morning]. I have put it on hold and we'll see. I don't have any particularly strong feelings about it as yet.
