A reader reports spotting an AP story about a gorilla who escaped from a Boston zoo and was spotted two hours later sitting on the bench at a bus stop. He offers three interpretations:
1. Public transportation is getting worse and worse. Two hours and no bus.
2. The gorilla’s escape plan was thwarted by not having exact change.
3. He missed the bus because he was mugged.
A reader closer to the site of the escape reports what neither my source nor I knew: the gorilla attacked two people, a teenager and a two-year-old. Not, he points out, a joking matter. Sorry.
