Kill Birds to Prevent Airplane Crashes?
Have we really come to this question so soon? My buddy Harry O asked me what I thought of the idea of allowing airports to kill birds that might imperil air traffic… I’m sure you know what my response was! Suddenly, it feels like the run-up to the invasion of Iraq with birds playing the role of terrorists and WMD at the same time. Does human nature really impel us to kill others to feel safe ourselves?
