This Mayor Is "For" The Birds

Mayor R. Rex Parris of Lancaster, California thinks that his city will be happier with the sound of chirping birds piped in, to the city's streets...or a least, along the main drag. He said so - at Monday's State of the City Address. Hizzonor says that scientific research backs up his claim!

Parris is known for his flamboyant ideas. He got a law passed giving the city the right to castrate pit bulls, ordered city officials to learn Mandarin in a bid to woo Chinese business, and riled some people by saying he was growing Lancaster into a Christian community.

Lancaster, with a population of 150,000, is the 6th largest city in Los Angeles County.

Parris is up for re-election, this year.
