Photos > Email of the Day - from The New York Times

An email that I swear I am not making up.

Hi,

I am writing to see if you have a high resolution photo of the Carolina northern flying squirrel and if so, if we can use it in the dining section of the New York Times.

Thank you for your help.
Sincerely,
Phaedra Brown
Picture Editor
Dining

I wrote back to ask the obvious question:

Sorry, no. I've never had the pleasure of seeing one in the wild.

And you know I have to ask why you want a picture of a flying squirrel in the dining section.
