    Highlands is going to strictly 'Birds'. The red-bellied Robin and the white bellied Chickadee are offended. Other 'Blue Birds' are complaining about racial profiling and Blue Jays are feeling the affects because they can so easily be mistaken as Blue Birds...It's a shame, really...

    One of the problems with this country imo is all of te "Political Correct" terms that some say must be used. People and orginazations like the ACLU, PETA, Green Peace and others imo are now doing much more harm than good for their own causes. What some orginazations started out to be a very good and needed thing has now become ridiculous.

    I don't know how many problems like this would ever come up if someone didn't stir it up. Some just look for petty stuff to get on a rant about where if nothing was said in the first place no one would pay any attention to it or have a problem with it.

    George Orwell might have called it "Politspeak".
