Name a baby penguin after Raymond Plotkin, the UNM student who died from H1N1 three years ago

Editor,

I am the father of Raymond Plotkin, who died from H1N1 while attending UNM in December of 2009. His mother and I would like to encourage all UNM faculty, students and alumni on Facebook to vote to name one of the new baby penguins born at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas after Raymond. One option, and best, is to search Moody Gardens, open all comments and to “like” my comment, which is the 41st one. Or make your own comment. You can also ”like” No. 44 by Rabbi Kantrowitz.

The “Take one for Raymond” flu shot clinic sponsored every year on campus by SHAC is in memory of Raymond.
