Pooh-Poohs Pigeon Pets



You sure did a bad thing for the people of Lincoln Square (Lawrence and Lincoln) when you glorified "pigeon man." He now has laminated copies of his picture in your Reader (October 22). He solicits money "for pigeon feed." They sit all over his body and head and the sidewalk is full of pigeon poop.

He is disgusting as he talks to pigeons eating from his mouth. People are blasted with a tirade of scolding and swearing as he points to the picture that praises him that you gave him.

Why doesn't he feed them at his house or yours?

The Corus bank and Alderman Schulter are no help to us as he dirties the busy corner with 75 pigeons.
