>From The New York Times, Tuesday, 2002-09-03, pA9:

"A marine biologist, Jan Einarsen, said the whale seemed well fed after his journey but may be seeking human solace after being snubbed by his own kind."

I know the feeling.

Maybe that's why I seek the solace of whales :-]

        "Keiko the Whale Frolicking in Fjords", By DOUG MELLGREN, ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
        "OSLO, Norway -- Keiko, the killer whale who became famous as the star of "Free Willy" movies, has turned up in a Norwegian fjord, six weeks after he was returned to the wild from his pen in Iceland."
        "He said Keiko was in excellent shape, but still seems to prefer humans to other whales."
        [Quotes Copyright 2002, by the Associated Press.]
        Nervous systems tend strongly to process information in a way that 'values' that which, through experience, has become merely-familiar.
        Maybe, if the whale-'[la]nguage' stuff I discussed a while back were carried out, Keiko would listen and understand? :-]
