    Had to satisfy my own curiousity.

    I believe in cause and effect.

    The effect of 5,000 birds lying dead in a square mile radius led me to believe there has to be a rudimentary cause.

    I assumed it to be man made.

    And the 'firecracker story' made me laugh out loud and spit water towards the TeeVee.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      Birds suffer a lot from our agricultural policies and I don't mean to minimize that fact at all.  I'm not sold on the firecracker story, but it is not as unbelievable as you might think.

      The birding (and larger environmental) community in Arkansas is pretty solid - remember that they've been energized by things like the possibility of Ivory Billed Woodpeckers in their midst.  If there is a chemical or other man-made cause behind this, I think they will push on this.

      They only call it Class War when we fight back.

        If it weren't for this diary I wouldn't know the USDA kills thousands of birds every year, and I doubt a lot of southerners are reading this diary.
