"Have you ever watched a vast swarm of starlings rell around the sky in Africa? Or a million-strong herd of wildebeest? If so, I'm sure you've marvelled at their ability to communicate withut actually appearing to do so. But you know what? I think human beings can do exactly the same thing"
(Sunday Times 18th July)
Really, Jeremy? And did you have that idea all by yourself? Or did it come from somebody else (like the examples you cite)?
Nice to have you on the HERD bus, evenso. Welcome aboard.
PS Unless you have a Times online subscription (or you still have the Review section to hand), you're not going to be able to do read the full article. Blame that nice Mr Murdoch.
