Happy 2011 everyone. New faces in government, a new year and only three or four days in a worldwide mystery is occurring.
Thousands of animals have died in the first few days of 2011 all over the planet. In scenes reminiscent from last season's ABC episode, "Flash Forward" anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 blackbirds and starlings fell from the sky dead or dying over Beebe, Arkansas a half hour before midnight on New Year's Eve. Initial reports said there were only 1,000 dead blackbirds but as New Year's Day dawned those numbers escalated into the thousands.
