Creation Museum and Zoo Deal Quashed
http://news.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/2...

The Cincinnati Zoo and the Creation Museum launched a joint promotional deal last week to draw attention to their holiday attractions.


It worked, but not the way zoo and museum officials had hoped.

The zoo pulled out of the deal Monday after receiving dozens of angry calls and e-mails about the partnership, which offered reduced prices to anyone who bought tickets to the zoo's Festival of Lights and the museum's Christmas celebration, Bethlehem's Blessing.

"When we partner with the Reds, we don't get these kinds of e-mails," Yelton said. "It's pretty clear this is more of a distraction."

1. Aren't zoos supposed to educate people about science?
Somebody needs to get fired.

2. It's Cincinnati. They still believe in spontaneous generation.
