NIMBY: acronym for “Not In My Backyard,” used (often pejoratively) to describe residents who are resistant to neighborhood change. One-time NIMBY/zoo videographer Merry Morris:
These two adorable jerboas are doing their best to stop me from feeling so sad whenever I look into the exhibit area where the striped weasel lived for so many years. The jerboas really are cute, and curious about the zoo visitors, too.
Like many NIMBYs, Morris was worn down, after the fact. By cuteness.
