Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

Zoo Day

I kind of hate zoos in general, but on the zoo continuum between "just like the wild!" and "barbarically sterile," the Santa Barbara Zoo is just sort of in the "quaintly cramped" middle. So even though the gorillas are so bored they eat their own poo, at least the weather's always nice. And you can feed a giraffe if you want to.
