    Wow, you gave me a heads-up to look for it in the paper tomorrow, St. Pete Times has the best articles hands down. A few weeks ago it was about a guy trying to trap peacocks in the neighborhood and the neighbors threw a fit, it was great. Neighbors won and the peacocks are staying put for now. Birds win.

    Pretty good article.

    However, one of the comments caught my attention (ain't like I haven't seen it before) and, in hopes of tearing away the shrink wrap from the doors of perception, I thought I'd comment:
