In other parts of town, it's been a rough few weeks for local backyard chicken owners as City Hall has launched a massive campaign to separate them from their beloved birds for fear of diseases being spread by the chickens. Outraged chicken owners have formed a group called CLUCK (Coalition of Lawrence Urban Chicken Keepers) to combat this outrage. An inside source recently informed Richard that the group held a secret meeting attended by none other than former Mayor Boog Highb.rg.r, a longtime favorite of the blog, who once proclaimed a National Dada Month for Larryville. Boog supposedly informed the group that the chicken controversy would likely blow over if the group would simply simmer down and abandon their plans to launch what one concerned citizen dubbed a "full-feathered chicken-costume raid on City Hall."
In happier news, the success of last month's downtown Wilco concert has prompted Larryville to embark on a summer concert series. The city has decided to follow the influential Wilco with a very special evening with...Poi Dog Pondering.
Kip says: "Finally, we're getting some real bands. I was over Wilco as an undergrad, but this Poi Dog show has some potential. I'm hoping the city can book Was(Not Was) or Frankie Goes to Hollywood later this summer!"
