When I say Benson you probably think of the milktoast sitcom from the 80’s.  But when you say Benson I think of the Chemical Engineering Department in Benson Hall on the campus of a large university situated on a sprawling scenic 700 acre campus just north of the ship canal. 


There’s a crow that works the territory which includes Benson Hall and he knows me. Over the past year in the absence of 50,000 students, faculty and staff he has gotten to know me so well he’s ready to ride my electric assist bathtub. 


In the photo he’s eyeing the throttle which is right next to his foot. He would have no problem giving it some juice with a foot or his beak.  I’m not sure what he would do when the bike lurched forward, probably just chuckle and then ask for some more stale cheese balls.  

as in Chemical Engineering
