A roving seal pup has surfaced in the waters by downtown Riverhead, and town officials are falling all over each other to be the most effusive in welcoming "him or her" to the locality. Hamptons.com quotes one, "Pennsylvania has Puxatawny Phil and we here in Riverhead have Peconic Pete—or Patricia." Added one councilmember, "We urge the Peconic seal to think about relocating permanently to Riverhead. It is a great place to raise a family, with a growing downtown, great communities and friendly people—in or out of the water, Riverhead has it all." (Except, perhaps, shame?) [Hamptons.com]
