crow no go
the excellent Marbury has this, which indicates that there was at one stage US research into using crows to find terrorists. Srsly. I take it seriously too. That is largely because I am reading 1Q84 (readers, tell me how to say the title) by Haruki Murakami. Anyone who has read him before knows that cats and birds matter in his books. There is a crow in this one which terrifies me more than any bird has since Hitchcock. I have been reading the book (on Kindle of course) for something over a week, and am over halfway through the third and last volume. Please please let me finish it soon, so I can do something else - and so I can stop looking apprehensively up at the sky at night. Any readers read this? Let me know what you think.
