You self righteous jackass. You’re pathetic.
A while back I posted some “hate mail” I received regarding the proposed destruction of Leatherback Sea Turtle National Park here in Costa Rica. Because doing that was so therapeutic, I thought I’d post the following public comments I got from a gentleman who wants to know where he can see whales and play golf down here. You can view the comment thread here. Enjoy:

What are the most common ports where whale watching boats leave from in February? l’m trying to co ordinate a fishing and whale watching trip (as well as golf). If you can give me several ports which have all those nearby I’d be very grateful. Pat Ritchen

Feb isn’t the best month to see whales in CR. Humpbacks are here right now! But try Bahia Drake on the Osa Peninsula and hotels around the Parque Nacional Marino Ballena (whale national park) in Central CR. Sorry, I can’t help you with the golf as golf cources are a major contributor to the destruction of coastal zones. I’m guessing there’s pleanty of golf in your home country—leave the clubs at home and suppot true ecotourism efforts here!

You self righteous jackass. Golf courses don’t DESTROY the ecosystem or the delicate coastal foliage. You misspelled “course” by the way. I’m sure you’re living in a tent or a small hut with a palm frond roof. You’re pathetic. P. Ritchen

Thanks for your comments (and the spell check) Patrick. I actually live in an apartment in San Jose (2 million people) and often wear a suit and tie when I lecture. Yes, we walk among you!
