This morning a plane taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City hit a bird, which caused engine failure.  The plane landed safely and no one was hurt.  This is after two years of geese killings in New York City, ostensibly to thin the flocks and protect civilian aviation.  Anyone want to bet that they double down and start killing more geese?
