How did the chicken get back down? With all the money spent "saving" the chicken, I'm sure it will be adopted by Lupi and end up in a burrito. That's what I'd do with it.

I heard on the radio that he had several Civil War veterans that sponsored him to become a senator! Now that is living history, & I'll bet no other senator can say that of themselves.

I saw on the tube where the chicken/balloon contraption got caught up in some power lines. A cop brought it back down with a BB gun.
