Whittaker the Turkey gets obituary in The Atlantic

Whittaker the Turkey died doing what he loved: standing in the middle of the road. Atlantic writer, Julie Beck, became fascinated by Whittaker while home visiting her family this winter. She has a touching obituary for our region's most famous galliform. If you were a fan of Whittaker, you will want to check the article out. I never knew there was so much Whittaker fan art.

  1. The obit is exceptionally well written. The phrase I enjoyed most was this one: " the University of Michigan in the nearby town of Ann Arbor, ..." Ann Arbor as just a nearby town to Ypsilanti is...well...perfect.
