in which witness is borne: birds, politics, fiction and critical art theory


Tuesday, August 30, 2005
My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Biloxi, Mississippi, New Orleans and the surrounding areas devastated today by Hurricane Katrina.
Oh, and the New York Times reports today that the Ivory Billed sighting may be inconclusive. Thanks, guys. We get it, 'k? We're just a little amusing tidbit for you to consume with your morning triple mocha soy frappalatte. Birders are like the last people on earth to learn that the media is only your friend when you look like a hero, not when the story is complex and filled with uncertainty, as this one has been since February 27. I don't know of any birder who isn't aware that there's still a chance the Ivory Billed isn't out there. These party crashers are just rubbing it in.
