A group of 4th graders in New Hampshire took a field trip to the state legislature because they wanted to make the red-tailed hawk the state raptor (bird of prey). What was expected to be a fun-filled trip that would allow kids to learn how government works turned into an absolute nightmare!
Just as he finished a sermon on Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI symbolically released two doves into the air as a call for peace. But soon after the birds took flight, an aggressive seagull began dive bombing one of them. Uh oh. We're generally not superstitious, but we sure hope this isn't a sign of bad things to come.
