Friday News 'N Notes

- Today's Metro Connection show on WAMU 88.5 will deal with the "Battle of the Live Music Venues". You can listen live at 1 on the radio or internet or download the podcast after it ends.

- It's nice to see that Silver Spring still retains some third world charm. From the Post:

A man who lives next door to the owner of six chickens reported that the birds were not confined by a fence and often roosted in his yard. An animal services officer came to the scene and could see that only one chicken was holding to a coop, which was small but featured a nesting box, food and water.
This chicken phenomenon has been previously noted in other areas of Silver Spring, as well.

- This cellphone jammer might be a worthwhile investment for those who frequent the Majestic Theatre. If you want to be more discreet, this company offers a similar device disguised as a pack of cigarettes. Presumably, neither are FCC approved.

"The officer left a notice explaining that the birds who had run afoul of their neighbor were to be removed within 72 hours."

Ha. At least someone has a sense of humor about it.

Enough with the chickens. If people want chickens for pets, let them but a farm. I do not want chickens in my neighborhood-they are noisy, they stink and they may carry disease.

Chickens are not considered pets for most communities- so get rid of them.

I agree with you regarding the cellphone jammer...I had a miserable experience at the Majestic last weekend, as three people (out of a crowd of maybe twenty) were on phones throughout the movie. The Majestic management needs to start taking this issue seriously, or they'll be losing patrons before long.
