    He he...a turkey disrupting mail service. Going postal as it were. And it's them darn Canadian Geese alway's flying into jet's engines that is most disruptive. Canada really needs to man-up and take responsibility.

    You should see the way people in Colorado drive on the ice. Colorado is just like Texas and everywhere else...one big melting pot of people from everywhere.
