Chicago Alderman Proposes $1,000 Fine For Feeding Pigeons
"Cappelman isn't enamored of Chicago's ubiquitous birds and WBBM-TV reported Thursday he's not alone.
'They're a nuisance. They're everywhere. You know, you could stand there waiting on the bus and they're all over your feet,' Bobby Williams told the Chicago TV station while standing outside the Wilson train stop."
Compared to politicians who propose ridiculous laws, pigeons are relatively harmless. I'll take a pigeon with a penchant for crapping all over the place over a typical dirty alderman.
Pigeons may be ubiquitous in the streets of Chicago, but so are thugs and homeless persons. How about proposing an anti-loitering law that will rid the streets of gangbangers and the homeless?
I'm persuaded the fine residents of Chicago would prefer ducking bird droppings to ducking stray gunfire.
Cappelman's proposed law is for the birds, the voters of Chicago should kick this birdbrain to the curb.
