South Jordan, Ut. At 7:02 am., the birds on my block convened a town hall meeting in the pine tree at the bend in the road. Their rhetoric was fierce as their chirping was heard as far as two blocks away. What were they discussing? Plans for how they will manage the scheduled water shut off between 9am and 5pm today, or perhaps the conflict in Syria and what President Obama will tell us in his address to the nation tonight.
