NYTimes columnist Kristof victim of high expectations

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof may be in over his head, so to speak.

Kristof has become the victim of his own family vacation, with a marine excursion leading to a bit of an odd request from his daughter.

Kristof tweeted Friday:
I'm in Florida with the kids on their school break, and today we went kayaking -- and saw a manatee. My daughter wants to make it her pet.
