  1. About those caskets. The issue is that the decision to remain ignorant is OURS. That’s in the Constitution. Also, apparently, is Herschel’s decision to get maimed.

    Finally, remind me to NEVER fuck with a kingbird.

  2. Thanks for that “tongue kisses from hell” link. Also, I never heard of a bird riding on the back of another. Hawks always avoid contact. The thinking is they know that if their wings are injured they’re doomed because they could no longer hunt. Now if the kingbird was smart as well as brave it would go after the hawk’s wings.
