Wow, here's a cool article from the Dallas Morning News about 4 muggers who have been arrested for multiple muggings since October 13. Oh, and with as elaborate a system as they obviously had, you can bet they didn't start mugging people on Oct 13. The first two were apprehended when they were driving away from a mugging late at night with their lights off and nearly hit the parked car of an undercover police officer who followed and pulled them over.
Did anyone in DFW see the flocks (? don't know what to call it) of enormous raptors that were flying south yesterday? I call that extremely peculiar. They didn't look like buzzards, but more like some kind of eagle. I saw at least 5 groups of two dozen or more of these birds, all soaring southward, with a few stragglers here and there. Maybe it was the raptor version of a Sunday drive. Nice brisk air current, coasting along thermals. Sounds nice.
By the way, someone I know saw a bald eagle at Lake Fork last week, which is a couple hours east of Dallas. I didn't know they ever made it to our neck of the woods. This is a person with keen eyesight and not given to flights of fancy.
