The mayor of Phoenix was very worried about a plague of pigeons in Phoenix.
He could not remove the pigeons from the city. All of Phoenix was full of
pigeon poop, the people of Phoenix could not walk on the sidewalks, or
drive on the roads. It was costing a fortune to keep the streets and
One day a man came to City Hall and offered the Mayor a proposition. "I can
rid your beautiful city of its plague of pigeons without cost to the city.
But, you must promise not to ask me any questions. Or, you can pay me one
million dollars to ask one question."
The mayor considered the offer briefly and accepted the free proposition.
The next day the man climbed to the top of City Hall, opened his coat, and
released a blue pigeon. The blue pigeon circled in the air and flew up into
the bright blue Arizona sky. All the pigeons in Phoenix saw the blue pigeon
and gathered up behind the blue pigeon. The Phoenix pigeons followed the
blue pigeon as she flew southward out of the city.
The next day the blue pigeon returned completely alone to the man atop City
The Mayor was very impressed. He thought the man and the blue pigeon had
performed a wonderful miraculous feat to rid Phoenix of the plague of
pigeons. Even though the man with the pigeon had charged nothing, the mayor
presented him with a check for 1 million dollars and told the man that,
indeed, he did have a question to ask and even though they had agreed to no
fee and the man had rid the city of pigeons, he decided to pay the 1
million just to get to ask ONE question. The man accepted the money and
mayor to ask his question.
Do you think he is going to ask where the pigeons went?
Do you think he is going to asked where he got the blue pigeon?
The mayor asked: "Do you have a blue Mexican?"
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
[George Washington (1732 - 1799)]
