    TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) -- Poisoned pigeons began nose-diving into pavement and dying on downtown sidewalks, marring the city's annual festival.

    Authorities cleaned up more than 25 sick or dead birds that apparently had eaten poisoned corn from the roof of a nearby bank branch.

    "The death of these pigeons was more than an unfortunate accident," local CapitalOne Bank President Lacy McMillen said in Tuesday's online edition of Texarkana Gazette. "It was not the intention of the bank to harm any of these birds."

    Ummm, I think if you've set out poisoned corn it IS your intention to harm the pigeons. It is your intention to harm them right to death. What a little liar Mz. Lacy is.

    Pigeons can be nasty and I don't have a real problem with people trying to eliminate them, but what about TIMING people?! Poison them right at City Fest time?
