As long as the pigeons feed the Peregrines, I don't care that much. Although
I thought that to include a d was just a common error. I didn't think it had
any basis, albeit just in ancient etymology. Hard to see a connection with
"pidgin". I don't know of any modern books that spell "pidgeon." By the way
it is Schodde, not Schoode. Some people really love pigeons. Isn't it
depressing seeing scenes of London or Rome, where people think it is great
to have pigeons (and nothing else) to feed in the streets. We don't need
much more proof that we are so much better off here.
