Ilustration by Leo Pilares

The day has come

So when my assistant managing editor Natasha Clark came to me and asked if I would kiss an animal to the Zoo in Forest Park for a fund-raising stunt for the Diabetes Walk, I said, "Sure."

I thought it would be a goat or a pig or something benign. Nope. It's the zoo's camel, Fergie. At least she's a lady camel.

The things I do.

At least I didn't have to shave my beard off or eat a bug.

If you in Springfield, drop by the zoo at 11 a.m. and witness what a managing editor of community newspapers does.
