Our late, great columnist, Herb Caen, referred to all the pigeons around San Francisco as 'flying rats."
He hated them and groused about them often in his column! Ciwt didn't exactly buy the 'rat' analogy but she certainly came to have a pretty low opinion of the bird thanks to Caen.
So, imagine her surprise today when she walked by a children's store in her hood and saw this window display. Stuffed pigeons! Not the messenger variety; the plain old streetrat type. For children! Or maybe for adults who have moved to the country to raise their children and miss the city. For $34.95.
We'd never hear the the end of it if Caen was still around. Too bad..
