So while Africa USA might be
gone, there's still Lion Country Safari, but unlike
Africa USA, where you ride around the park in a
train, in Lion Country Safari you drive your own car
through the park, gazing at the various animals. And for the most part,
they roam around free, except for the lions and giraffes, which are fenced
off and the elephants and monkeys, which are kept behind moats.
At the end of the drive, there's a small theme park in place, I guess to
keep the kids occupied in case seeing wild animals wasn't enough. And like
most theme parks, the food and drinks are vastly overpriced, the gift shop
is overly-hawked, and the kids whine to their parents to buy said overpriced
food, drink and trinkets.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
