LOL at this week's NYTimes Complaint Box re pigeons. An excerpt...
On one memorable occasion, a miscalculated flight left a pigeon tangled in my friendâ€™s hair as she jogged in Central Park. Both girl and bird screamed frantically while the latter flapped its wings and dug its claws into her scalp. I would have never recovered.
And to think that some people feed these birds! I blame the creators of â€śMary Poppins,â€ť for that idiotic scene in which the boy sets off a run on a bank because he wants to feed pigeons outside St. Paulâ€™s Cathedral with a bag lady.
