Comforting Crows

In her review of singer-songwriter Allison Moorer’s latest CD, Crows, in, Jenna Woginrich manages to string together two head-turning statements in consecutive sentences. Quite a notable feat! Judge for yourself:

There’s something comfortable about crows—their trademark call, that unmistakable silhouette, and the fact that no matter where I reside, they’re always there.

I’m no ornithologist, but I think crows are a lot like the men in my life: clever little assholes that win you over with dark humor and reliable comfort.
Those of you not familiar with Moorer's music might want to check out a lovely little tune called Mockingbird.

I love reading your postings.

Liked the Mockingbird son, but can't quite go for Donald Duck as an erudite philosopher.

Keep up the great writing and insights Bird Man.

A 'comfort' of crows?
