THE NAME IS MOSSY, JAMESMOSSY ... A 230-pound sea lion found near East Bayshore Road on Nov. 8 is now in the care of The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, where staff named him after a Palo Alto Animal Services employee, with a marine-themed twist. James Moss was the first person to reach out to the Center after discovering the large mammal that led him and other staff to prevent it from entering the street. Marine Mammal Center spokesman Giancarlo Rulli said the names James and Jim were already taken for other sea lions, leading them to name him after Moss. The "mossy" part was added. Jamesmossy will stay in a temporary intensive-care-unit holding pen until veterinarians determine he can be moved into a standard rehabilitation pool pen to continue his treatment, Rulli said.

I like the headline “can you hear me now?” I would add, “are they reading this as quickly as we type?” Dr. Reichental must go. I disliked him from the minute the press release referred to him as “Dr....”. Thankfully my 11th grade bong hit buddy, also a comp sci PhD, does not insist on me calling him “Dr....”.
