...Will Obama be bringing any of Chicago's Hyde Park Monk Parakeets with him to D.C.? Or does Washington already have enough? These hard-working community organizers do a great job at building inexpensive but durable and comfortable apartments and providing equal rights for all adults. And--get this!--they have a ZERO carbon footprint! They're a little squawky, but provide an excellent example of how a diverse group of immigrants can work together for the common good in a spirit of cooperation and generosity of spirit. A role model for our time! This photo was taken, by the way, in Hyde Park.
And hey--last time we had a president from Hyde Park, it was a different Hyde Park! And that guy apparently had to fix up a big mess left for him, too. I'm glad we birds don't get involved in economic issues!
