The Week Magazine:
Concern is growing in Scotland over the fate of the fabled Loch Ness monster,
which hasn’t been spotted in 18 months—the longest stretch without a sighting
in 90 years.
“It’s very upsetting news,” said accountant and Nessie expert Gary
Campbell. Campbell, who has collected 1,036 reports of sightings, including some
dating back 1,500 years, thinks the prehistoric creature is still alive. “I’m
convinced that Nessie has just taken some time out,” he said, “and will be back
with a vengeance this year.”
Me: I’ve got this. I’m off to Scotland today. Spending some
time in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, the Highlands, and—yes—Loch Ness. I’ll
find Nessie. If you don’t hear from me in the next couple weeks and I don’t
show up at the next Lit & Art event, better stark poking around Loch Ness.
