Thanks, DZhunter. Thanks for that yangling yander sideways, sigoggling allusion to, we guess, Ol' Rob, a legendary varmint, but a real good one.

I would remind readers, though, not to pass judgment on the Giant Chicken until all the facts are in.

He looks like a tolerable good rooster, at least.

And, we ask that everyone remember that those who don't remember history are condemned to relive it.

Remember, too, that Ol' Rob turned out to be, in fact, an Adair County treasure; that the hysteria created by newspaper fear mongers, Dr. Billy Neat and his accomplice, Pete Walker, and their gullible, inadvertent enabler, His Innocence, the Old Ed Waggener, who has now gone straight, and only posts the gospel truth on the Internet (having, done ready faced a threatened lawsuit from Donnie Bunch, who warned us people can be sued for Lying on the Internet, a felony, we guess) and now operate by the JIM imposed media rule: Writer, First Steer up Nothing, based, we think on the Bible phrase, Inherit the Wind.

And so, troubling not our own house, and Hobbit-Like or not, we sketch our peaceful, placid, uneventful world w/o hyperbole. -EW
