 Taking it to litter ally

Maybe my last comment was too offensive, not well elaborated, or just simply stupid. It was enough to be edited away.

The Look
At this point I want to apologize to the adequacy-commune for having been stupid.
Now, let me explain which my actual thoughts had been on what Anne Marie's story was about:

a homeless man and a pigeon were tussling over a scrap of food in the street not twenty yards from where I stepped. "Surely not," I thought to myself

Well, I thought so, too.

but further inspection confirmed my original conclusion. The man sat in the alley, huddled against the brick facade of a dry-cleaning shop, eating what appeared to be some sort of bread or perhaps a bagel. A pigeon stood nearby, flapping its wings in frustration as his repeated entreaties and attempts to snatch the food from the man's clutch were rebuffed in a flurry of hands and feathers.

And that is the part where Anne Marie lost me. If not so then please correct me on that, but I personally have the experience with pigeons, that they will always fly or run away from humans, only attempting to draw closer if humans give them food - in a kind way. I can also imagine that a pigeon does not stop attempting to get food even when driven away furiously, but never ever have I witnessed a pigeon attacking a human for food, as hungry as it might be.
Therefore, my conclusion was that Anne Marie lied straight out. I apologize if I have not elaborately laid out my point in posting "Lie To Me", or even if the incident really happened as discribed.
