Lake Merritt MonsterThe final vote is in: Merrittzilla is the winner among names suggested by readers for the Lake Merritt monster. Out of 633 voters, 36 percent (or 228) chose the name over four others despite a last minute campaign to prevent it. More details to come in the Saturday Oakland Tribune. The picture is courtesy of The Lake Merritt Institute, which had uncovered the monster’s presence before I did (although I swear I didn’t know until after the story appeared!).
