PLANES VS. BIRDS

Houston is not only the center of our beloved petroleum industry, it is now vying for the capital of bird murder. A local TV station recently exposed the bird poisoning program at Houston Airport (actually named for a Bush) so that airplanes won’t be endangered by smaller flying objects. It is not clear if the airport ever tried to use noise-makers that are commonly used by agri-business to keep birds out of crops. Maybe they didn’t want the noise drowning out the wonderful music from the jet engines?
Of course, Texas is one of those states that would oppose any attempt to introduce high-speed trains that would immediately be more efficient than flying from say Houston to Dallas or Oklahoma City.
