The unsourced ones on the talk page are even better.

“i have some pain I’m gonna have for the rest of my life. So every now and then I kick your fucking ass”

“I used to kill pigeons, rip their heads off, ‘You dirty rat pigeon!’”

and…

“One morning I woke up and found my favorite pigeon, Julius, had died I was devastated and was gonna use his crate as my stickball bat to honor him. I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like an infantile retard.”

On a 2002 column by sportswriter Wallace Matthews: “[He] called me a ‘rapist’ and a ‘recluse.’ I’m not a recluse.”

Lol, best one I saw.

Well, people do change their minds. And some pigeons might be more likeable than others.
