Does that mean the Perigrine Falcon walks after his prey?

Yes. Nonchalantly.

But if it's carrying ice cream, he runs.

Forgive me if this sounds like a plug but... But I just finished blogging the latest Bushism and the word of the day HAS to be: "Disassemble"

Quoth The Emperor "[...] people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble that means not tell the truth"

Bet you never found that definition in the OED ;)

You know that kind of post goes over well here.

I don't know why, but Bloglines is not telling me when you have a new post.
Damn you, Bloglines. Damn you.

I'll have to try to re-subscribe to your feed.
