Birds and bees

Mandatory bird.

Now they've pissed off the nurses...
Outraged by the arrest of two nurses and a union organizer volunteering at the Occupy Chicago protest over the weekend, National Nurses United is planning a protest at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office today.

The group, the nation's largest union of registered nurses, is calling on its membership in Chicago to picket City Hall this morning to demand that misdemeanor trespassing charges against the nurses and all of the protesters be dropped.
Do you think they've learned anything? The Iraq war is finally over. And it marks a complete neocon defeat

Look up, look up,
And meet your Maker,
Bee fire you travel on!

I am going to offer Rahm Emanuel a corkscrew. He can stick it in his ear, or his rear, or any other suitable orifice. And to think I briefly considered moving to Chicago about 13 years ago!

(Much later...) Speaking of Japan and disasters, did you post on this and I just missed it? It looks like your coast could end up looking like my coast...

You mean bees will be waiting for me in heaven?...

I confess my greatest fear is that after I die I will be presented with all the food I have wasted over the years... all those brown bananas and moldy loaves of bread....

And no, I have not posted on the wreckage from Japan. I just hope we won't find bodies amid the boats and boards.
