I think the FAA should look into the eradication of all avian life. Not only are they a danger to aviation, but they poop on my car too.

Let it be known, It wasn't spam, I am not clueless, but I am occasionally nuts. Does every post need to be insightfull and thought provoking, or can we laugh once in a while. Thank you El Tigre. I shall blame Bush. With all the trees that have been knocked down but disasters the avians have nowhere to live. As the aimless overfly the earth, I'm sure they are distracted, if not despondant, and perhaps suicidal. Or like anything else bird strikes have been around for years, but land one airplane in a river,and every bird makes headlines
