On Thursday, February 5th, the CA's Center City Appeal ran a 6-by-8-inch color photo of the Memphis Zoo's new baby orangutan, along with a story titled "Baby Orangutan -- sur prise -- beats the odds to survive." While we here at Fly on the Wall are just as excited as the next fella about this furry bundle of joy, we've been more than a little amazed at the amount of space the CA has devoted to the new arrival. We were even more surprised to see that the story in question was penned by Brian Carter, communications specialist for the Memphis Zoo. We can only assume that in the near future the CA will allow motion-picture companies to review their own films and Rickey Peete to cover the City Council.
