The Urban Chicken Controversy

Rages in Missoula where the city council is set to settle the issue. Should city-dwellers be allowed to raise chickens so they can be self-sustaining or will their neighbors, who have to live with the smell and the noise without the benefits, prevail. Here's a video of the controversy (it's slanted in favor of the chickens :-). Go watch it because it's pretty funny and very well done (the creators definitely have a future in PBS type programing -- they might want to apply to Frontline).
