Lily Tomlin's Heartleft Plea to the Dallas City Council: Move Jenny Already

Lily Tomlin urged the Dallas City Council to relocate Jenny the elephant this morning, reminding her rapt audience of Dallas politicians about how tough it must be to live in a closet, alone, on a hard-as-cement floor. Apologizing for speaking so long without "being funny," Tomlin closed by offering, "'Zoo' is animal-speak for 'Guantanamo.'" The Unfair Park A/V team has the video. --Patrick Michels
