    Yup! 3:45 P M Pacific time Seattle. Our national bird flying free and proud just graced me with it's power and elegance. Then a couple of crows, jealous of the size and purpose of our living emblem, flew up from a nearby cemetery and attacked the eagle. They had no reason to assault our bird. They just hate it. I believe the crows, not satisfied with gloating over dead Americans, just can't stand what our symbol stands for and dive bomb our eagle and try for no apparent reason to impede it's progress. I believe these crows are neocons.

    True story.

    Maybe they're driving it away from their nest.

    Up here, I see them every day. There are places where you can actually watch dozens of eagles. I actually go through a period of trepidation whenever they fly over my kidding pens. They can easily take and carry off a young goat.
