Polly want a better cage

Speaking of wild birds in cages, Bob Pool of the L.A. Times wrote a short piece a few days ago about a woman who is squawking -- and rightfully so! -- for parrot owners to increase the size of their birds' cages. The woman, whose name happens really to be Tweti, rhyming with tweety, argues that parrots are wild birds and really shouldn't be pets at all. But once they're in the prison system of petdom, they can't be released safely, and need cages bigger than most of them are allowed.

Who could argue?
