To the Editor:

Lady Lake
In Beautiful Florida
I’m 500 years late, but
Thank You, Columbus!

Bye Bye Blackbird

That, of course, is the title of a very old song, but is not directly related to this collection of words and letters from our 26 – letters alphabet. I, myself, and millions of folks like me, our maybe not like me, have or have not noticed, from time to time, what first appears to be on yon horizon, the forming of a tornado. But, from continued observation, the tornado has changed to hundreds of blackbirds, and there appears not to be a leader, yet they all are “thinking” the same way at the same time.
The above subject matter could fit quite well in solving political issues. . . . Or, maybe this article should just be left to . . . the birds . . .
