Headline led to amusing misconception

Posted: Monday, January 16, 2006

The headline “Turkey fights to contain bird flu” on page A-7 of your Jan. 11 edition was a shocker. Here, just a few months after my family and I enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, comes the news that turkeys are now being used in the international effort to combat bird flu.

I am aware of crime-fighting dogs, policemen on horses, etc., but I had no idea that gobblers have taken the point on the international war on bird flu. I expect that this will impact millions of families next Fall and I look forward to more reports on what may be the most important scientific news since Madame Curie discovered sliced bread.
