Hey--we birds don't slam into airplanes--they slam into us!

To whoever wrote the stupid article in the Miami Herald today, birds are not kamikaze pilots! Your headline is way misleading: "A bird reportedly slammed into a jetliner departing Fort Lauderdale, forcing the Spirit Airlines pilot to return to the terminal." And to come right out and say there were "no injuries" while not acknowledging the death of one of us when the plane slammed right into him seems cold. And what the h*ll does this mean: "The incident is another reminder of the havoc birds can cause aircraft"??? None of you humans were killed or injured, and the plane wasn't damaged. The havoc wreaked was by all your infernal airplane traffic in our historical skies.
