A mayor wants bird songs broadcast. The plan is for the city of Lancaster, California to pipe in recorded bird twittering through its streets. This would apparently make the city a brighter and happier place to be.
R Rex Parris, the mayor of Lancaster, presented this idea as part of his State of the City address on Monday. It sounds like a bit of a crazy idea. Parris wants the bird songs broadcast over the loudspeakers on Lancaster Boulevard. Do you think this is a good idea? Would it make you feel happier to be in the city?
This is not the first wild idea that Mayor Parris has had. Other strange ideas from the city official include giving Lancaster the right to castrate pit bulls, having city officials learn Mandarin Chinese in order to entice business and working to grow the city into a Christian community. Wow! These are an eclectic group of plans from the mayor to say the least.
There is no word on if his latest proposal will go into effect any time soon.
