It’s late. You’re walking home from somewhere on campus, maybe Mason Hall or the Michigan League. Walking through the cold, wintery night air, you hear drops on the ground and movements in the trees. You look up and see dozens — even hundreds — of American black crows peppering the branches. You bolt, hearing more drops, while covering your head and ducking.

I’m trying to write this column at Blue Leprechaun, a bar and grill on South University Avenue. A$AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane” is playing over the speakers and Bayern Munich is currently beating Borussia Dortmund five goals to nil. The other people at the table are enjoying their Saturday, camped out playing cards while waiting for Michigan men’s basketball to tip off in the Final Four against Loyola-Chicago and Sister Jean.
