    Thanks.

    That was the first time in 8 years I'd ever seen a crow land on that wire. I don't know why it decided to do so, either. It just landed, watched me for a while, then flew away. If I were a superstitious person, I'd probably be worried.

    Not to worry. Crows represent law, order and justice, in Native American folklore.

    Thanks for the re-assurance, but that depends on which of the 500 or so Native American folklores you're reading. In the ones I work with as a linguist, those associations don't seem to be there. Of course, they don't connect crows with death either, so I'm still okay that way.
