In Memory of Andrew Wordes – The Chicken Man

This was a long drawn out story that ended in the death of a kind and gentle man. I first met Andrew last year when folks in our city were fighting to get backyard hens legalized. He was a constant source of information, always answering my emails and helping us put everything together for the city council. All the time he had his own battle on his hands. The media covered only parts of his story. In the end he was portrayed as a whack job who fought the law and the law won. In actuality it was the worst case of a city tormenting someone that I have ever witnessed. I’m not going into detail here, as it’s a long drawn out saga and I’m weary from talking and writing about it. I just want to pay tribute to a fine man who was beat down and destroyed by hateful, mean people. Shame on them.

On the wings of angels Chicken Man, I’ll see you on the other side.
