we need a by Anonymous Citizen on January 31, 2007 state bird of peace just about as much as a chicken needs a root canal.
Shirley Johnson and the State Bird of Peace by Anonymous Citizen on January 31, 2007 Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...ha.
No! by Anonymous Citizen on January 31, 2007 I am a hunter, and I disagree with this. We are trying to re-establish a hunting season for doves in Michigan, and this would just be ammo for organizations like the HSUS and PETA to use against our cause. Besides, why would we need a state bird of peace? Other than trying to stop the hunting season?
