Pelican vs. swimmer

Who wins when a diving pelican hits a swimmer? The swimmer, a 50 year old woman, got a nasty gash on her face. The pelican died.

It's a very unusual event, not to be confused with Hitchcock's "The Birds," which incidentally was filmed in beautiful Bodega Bay where I used to live. The birds there are quite normal.

Couldn't it have had the good sense to go for Fabio, like the goose?

Hafa Adai Mark,

There is an online poll at the bottom of the Saipan Tribune website today asking "Do you support the proposal to create a Marine Monument in the northern islands?"

As you know, this is the project I am currently working on. I am trying to create the Mariana Trench Marine National Monument. It would be the second largest no-take protected area in the world.

Please vote "YES."

Can you also put something up on your blog asking people to vote "YES?" Um, and would it be possible to send an email to the Carnival of the Blue list asking them to vote, too?

Thank you.
