The procrastinators among us may be able to learn a lesson from one of the hundreds of ducks who’ve found Delphos is a place with plenty of available food and drivers who will stop their cars so they can safely cross city streets. it comes from the apparent untimely demise of one of those ducks on the ice of the Miami Erie Canal A duck, probably a male, was seen frozen in the ice on the canal last Friday and was still frozen in the same spot yesterday. I’m guessing the duck was a male because everybody knows a male would be least likely to heed warnings from other ducks that the water was freezing around them, and a male would never ask for directions on how to get to shore safely. Maybe he thought the warning that temperatures were going to fall over the weekend was fake news. Maybe he thought global warming would save him. Maybe he was just too obese from eating the grain that’s left on the ground to move. Whatever the reason the decision to fail to act quickly enough to get off the ice safely in time, was a very bad decision indeed. That’s the way I see it.
