Since we're talking about the #GoldenEagle video hoax, and since the theme of #BirdPoker is Predators, I had to reshare this gorgeous golden eagle. Golden eagles (real golden eagles) are spectacular birds. And I hear they almost never snatch children.

EDIT: This video: Golden Eagle Snatches Kid

And yes, it was a hoax:

I must confess, I am dreading today's elections.
Not because of who might win or lose.
Not because as a Californian, my vote for President will count 1/3 as much as an Alaskan (actually it won't matter at all -- I'm not in a swing state).
Not because my vote for Senate will count 1/50 as much as an Alaskan.

But because no matter what the outcome, our government will still be a giant bonfire of partisanship.  It is ironic since whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people.  And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party.

So my plea to the victors -- whoever they might be: please withdraw from your respective parties and govern as independents in name and in spirit.  It is probably the biggest contribution you can make to the country.

[If you agree, pass it on to your newly elected officials.]
