Good morning, Netizens…
Our quote of the day, which comes to us from television icon and sometimes-funny man, David Letterman, bespeaks how bad the air in Los Angeles is.
Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.
David Letterman (1947 - )
Fortunately, most days of the year our air here in Spokane is better, at least so long as you do not have to shovel it, which sometimes happens. However, we have recently seen an upsurge in the number of peregrine falcons that have the same result on indigenous bird populations, with frightful efficiency.
They swoop out of the sky at a high rate of speed, snapping the neck of their target, and then lift off to someplace more private to eat their dinner, tossing the bones and various unwanted parts of their meal over the side. The only difference between Los Angeles and Spokane is that the birds are somewhat disembodied when they fall from the trees and the falcons are fat and happy.
