PoPville missed connections

US Botanical Gardens -- Train Exhibit

Just got this note from a PoP reader asking for help:

I was commenting and reading the comments in your “most random thing on the sidewalk” post yesterday, and I about SHIT my pants when I read someone’s comment about finding a camera in the snow last year! I lost my camera in the exact spot that this person is talking about! The commenter – “other” – said he/she left the camera at the museum near there, and I want to know what museum it is! Just in case the camera is still there. It had some awesome snow pictures on it that I would love to have back.

Is there any way you can just send my request to the commenter from that post? I would LOVE to find this camera…

Please help if you can!! Thanks!


Well, as you commenters know–the Prince does not require registration nor email addresses (let alone valid email addresses) to comment. (This is why it often appears that “George Bush” “Jesus Christ” and “Superman” frequently comment on posts here.) The aforementioned “Other” is one of those commenters who chose to keep their e-identity to themselves.

So, if you are “Other” write me and I’ll connect you with Melanie.
