Jays apparently in turmoil. There was a moment of complete anarchy
this morning. Clearly a grumbling from the back bench hit a foul note
and leadership fell to recrimination. Which for a Processional
Blue Jay appears to result in flying around in circles chasing other
Processional Blue Jays while issuing high pitched yells.
Non-processional Blue Jays took no notice, they were too busy debating
the merits of a patch in the cut grass.
The trouble with a theory is that
once it is iterated, the mind inclines to cling to it, as though it were a
life raft. Obvious flaws are dismissed as quickly as new ideas.
I guess a theory must hold through thick and thin because it is supported by
pride, or honor, or one of those things that makes no sense whatsoever, but
which nonetheless achieve a confluence within an emotional state that
satisfies the conditions of well-being. "Damn right I am wrong but
what's that got to do with it."
