Vote for name of Lake Merritt monster!

July 12, 2008

The Oakland Tribune is conducting an online poll to name the monster living in Lake Merritt. Over at A Better Oakland, V Smoothe points out out that the currently leading name, Merrittzilla, is terrible. She suggests Sammie. I suggest the reader vote in this poll!

Go to and scroll down a little bit – the poll is next to the Sports stories.
