State of the Birds or Birds of the State?

Last Friday the online journal “Slate” published a great article on the official birds of the 50 states of the union, and what they should be. If you’re serious you’ll read more than the first three paragraphs, if you’re not so determined you’ll get your laughs quickly and leave it be.

    A very funny piece, and yet excellent suggestions for changes to the state birds. I’ve always wondered about all those cardinals and mockingbirds, but I didn’t realize that the entire nation was incapable of getting the goldfinches right.
