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.
