24-Hour Dorman: Awkward moment

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal and House Speaker Pat Murphy
stopped at The Gazette today to tout their legislative
accomplishments. But before we dug into the meaty details of health
care, the leaders shared dead pigeon anecdotes. Apparently, the
Statehouse's resident nesting Peregrine Falcon catches and eats
resident pigeons. As Murphy described it, the falcon snares a pigeon,
pins it down by its wings and, well, lunch is served. Trouble is, the
pigeon-stuffed falcon then leaves its less-than-appetizing meal
remnants on an outdoor balcony just off the House chamber. The
presence of these spent pigeons apparently have spoiled the speaker's
plans for a balcony lunch of his own. Understandable.
