Spy crows

A stunning twist in the War on Crows: the US military reportedly contracted with researchers to see if crows could be trained to find Osama Bin Laden. All this time the crows have been cast as our enemies -- but maybe they were working with the government the entire time. (What if the crow uprising is all a plot to to keep us down?!? Is that a black helicopter?!? Where's Glenn Beck's chalkboard?!?) See also: America's parachuting, armored, gas-mask-wearing, doggled military dogs. [KING/Neurophilosphy via TMN] [Foreign Policy]

Fascinating!

Also, don't forget about the US military's tip-top-secret CATS program, and the heroic "Band of Whiskers" who scratched, prowled, and meowed their way through Europe during WWII!

I know why I take the bus more - because it's easier to take now! Busplus from Schenec to Albany gives me a nice relaxing ride and I can do work or read my book, I basically gain an extra hour of my life. Can't wait for the navigator cards to ramp up. Much better than those ten trips.
