Give Geese a Chance

, ,

Andrew Levy, alarmed by the recession, hopes to supplement his income by blogging for Huffington Post. Excerpt from sample editorial:

In the wake of the events of 1-15, in which a wedge of Geese brought down a US Airways aircraft, here’s what you won’t be hearing about from the so-called “Mainstream Media”: We brought this on ourselves.

After an event such as this one, it’s important to look at the root causes: Why did the Geese attack us? Well, the truth is, for years we have been oppressing the Geese, using them for the fuel they provide for our bodies.

Boneless Goose Breast, Brandied Roast Goose, Roast Goose with Cumberland Sauce and Apricot Stuffing. And of course, the Christmas Goose. In the name of religion, we have been engaged in what can only be called a Crusade against the Geese. Is it any wonder that a few brave suicide Geese would seek revenge?

What I hear via the grapevine is that Hillary when she was a senator shut down bird control efforts because they killed birds.

More irony? Falcon breeder Tom Cullen used to do the control work (he gave me a bird so I don’t want to be hard on him).

But: his breeding partner in falcons is RFK jr!


I used to go out with Tom Cullen when I lived in CT.

RFK Jr. makes a good breeding partner because he has the money to do anything. He’s been a disastrous influence on Hudson River conservation. He was a major player in favor of dredging the whole upper river to get rid of PCBs. But I’ll give him points for influencing CT finally to legalize falconry.
