i think that birdsong is particularly noticeable in the city now due to less traffic. i think the birds are always there and singing, you just can’t usually hear it! it points towards how things might be, if we choose: cleaner air, quieter streets. okay. done. hi sheila!

Warbler migration is in full effect and the beauty of it is hard to describe. At Branch Brook Park in Newark this morning, we saw yellowthroats, redstarts, magnolia warblers, Wilson's warblers, a waterthrush, and a Nashville warbler (which I've never seen before). They're making their way from Central America to points north, and are just delightful.

In addition the general Republican hatred for public services, the main reason for the postal act of 2006, which requires the Post Office to fully fund all pensions RIGHT NOW for all workers (every other pension fund is designed to grow over time as money is paid in and investments increase in size) was to drive the USPS into bankruptcy so that the Postal Workers Union can be crushed.
