Little Antonio Sleeps with the Fishes

LA Times obituary on goldfish used to show how polluted LA River is (the LA River is the dry concrete river bed seen in many movies, such as Grease and Italian Job). Little Ed still thrives (,0,2595017.special): Little Antonio Found Dead in Tank - Los Angeles Times: "Little Antonio, a goldfish made almost famous by living over 111 days in water from the Los Angeles River, was found dead in his tank in the newsroom at 1:58 a.m. Monday. He was believed to be about five months old."
"Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, but the fish is expected to receive a burial at sea early this week by way of the Los Angeles sanitation system."
