The Three Rs
Recently I was asked, “Is there a difference between a crow and a raven?”
Instead of faking an answer, which I couldn’t do if I tried, I said I wasn’t sure, and that I’d find out.
We learn from the excellent source I linked that “since ravens belong to the crow (corvus) family of birds, they can be called-but not all crows are ravens.”
Tell me if I didn’t suffer some sort of trauma but after reading “not all…are….” I had a flashback to when I sat for the GRE and tried to twist my very unanalytical mind around the logical reasoning questions.
Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.
Bob Dylan’s wonderful Love Minus Zero/No Limit.
