A recent Associated Press article tells how Key West officials are worried that the famous (infamous?) chickens that roam around the city could be carriers of the bird flu. They're talking about rounding the 2,000 to 3,000 chickens that are wandering around town. I wonder if Venetian authorities are thinking about the pigeons in San Marco and what they'll do if the bird flu strikes? I don't want to be an alarmist, but--please don't kiss the pigeons, feed them, or let them climb all over you.
