The future's so bright, we gotta wear shades

Hey hey hey, look what Google just coughed up!

Now why the hell can't the Memphis Zoo just hand out this simple little Teton Trek map when visitors ask for it? Or, at the very least, include it somewhere in their exhibit description?

I guess that kind of behavior would be too ridiculously obvious and transparent for a public/private partnership.

So, I had to unearth this previously unknown artifact from the depths of the Special Capital Campaign Issue of the Memphis Zoo's newsletter from July/August 2006 (2.3MB PDF) which also includes a lot of fascinating talk about the Teton Wreck and the Zambezi Hippocampus.

Obviously the Memphis Zoo had all of this public info right there at its fingertips ages ago -- in handy electronic form, even! -- so why did I have to waste my precious time digging for it?
