"Its called a cricothyrotomy not a tracheotomy..." I've noticed the new Jericho television series has sparked some interesting threads of conversation at The FAL Files, AR-15.com, and many other Internet forums. SurvivalBlog's frequent content contributor Rourke has even started a Jericho-dedicated Yahoo discussion group. Check it out. OBTW, we don't own a television here at the Rawles Ranch, so don't ask me my opinion about the series, or anything else on television for that matter. (We only watch "Elk-evision", from our porch.)

The Seattle Post Intelligencer newspaper published a recent "scare tactics" article by Tom Paulson that begins: "Hundreds of undocumented chickens live in Seattle, a clucking time bomb planted right in the urban core that poses just as great a risk for deadly bird flu as any rural chicken should the severe Asian strain of avian influenza..." I fail to see how "hundreds" of domestic chickens constitute any significant threat compared to the hundreds of thousands of migratory and resident wild birds in the city. By both weight and volume there is far more duck, goose, and pigeon poop than there is chicken poop in Seattle.
