Even Chickens

I had a visit today in council from a group of students at University Elementary School, my earliest alma mater.

"What class were you in?" one asked.

"1980," I said. The students didn't seem to know exactly what this meant.

"No, what classroom were you in?"

I tried to explain how city council meetings work. At the time, we had just begun Public Comment. "This is the part of the meeting where you can talk to the City Council about anything you want to," I said.

"Even chickens?" one asked.

"Even chickens," I said.
