    There is some bird who sings his little heart out (at full volume) outside my window at 0500. Every morning. It irritates me, but he sounds so doggone happy I can’t stay that way for long. I’ll save my pellet gun for the pigeons…

    Thomas,
    If the Koch brothers buy the L A Times, they would need an experienced, old school fearless editor who still values that lost virtue, basic integrity. Your embrace of journalistic ethics would be refreshing for the entire industry.
    Took the L A Times for 30 years until it was clear that their editorial section was controlling their news coverage. Their “opinions,” always progressive, kept slithering onto the news sections so I cancelled and found the R-J.
    You would be an ideal savior for what was once a reasonably good paper, although I always preferred the old Herald Examiner. Perhaps just dreaming, but what the hell? Nice dream!

    John, what did he do that you would actually wish hell-A on Tom?

    We have a fireplace that faces all direction in our home.

    The little bugger sits on the chimney every morning and sings down the chimney until we are awake. Once he has accomplished that, he guards the pyracantha bush next to the back door. If you came within 5 feet of the bush, he dive bombs you.

    We call him Barack, he talks incessantly, doesn’t really say a damn thing, and then abuses us at every opportunity.

  5. That’s Barack. Copies someone else’s song, sings it as loud as he can, twice, then switches to another song, repeats, repeats, repeats.

  6. Oh, and thanks for the huge chuckle, Mr. Wilson.

    There’s a reason it is the state bird of Texas. Some native sons have much to say. Just sayin’.
