For Dead Chickens, A Monument Denied


Do you think future generations will look back at us in horror and disgust because standards will have evolved to the point where we seem like savages for not having erected giant roadside memorials honoring the tragic highway chicken fatalities that happen along our nation’s arteries with regrettable frequency? It’s a trick question, because the odds are there aren’t going to be very many future generations, and even if we somehow do survive as a species for another hundred years I am pretty sure the direction in which our sensibilities are headed is going to be one where we only express emotions about those who can do something for us or those we want to do something to. Sorry, chickens.
