My heart goes out to the parents of Maddox Derkosh, but Joshua Bloom's comments after witnessing the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium tragedy in the news story “Pittsburgh zoo fatality puts facilities elsewhere ‘on alert'” (Nov. 11 and TribLIVE.com) prompted this letter.

I am sure he was extremely upset, as were his children, but his comments were spoken like the attorney he is. Between each line of his comments screamed “lawsuit, lawsuit, lawsuit and, by the way, here's my card — call me.”

His personal opinion about the zoo's animal exhibit safety is without merit until all the facts are in. Cool your heels, counselor.
