Readers — I love that Fort Lee, NJ, sent a eafkkkhfzd
giant duck into traffic on Halloween to teach drivers to stop for pedestrians. Those who didn’t stop got tickets. It wasn’t really a sting, because cars SHOULD stop for pedestrians.
So here’s the wacky part. (Yes, wackier than dressing up as a duck for your job. I once had to dress up as a martian in a sequinned bathing suit. Work is work.) One of the women ticketed for not stopping claimed, in this interview, that as a woman, the duck scared her. Because of the long, sordid history of duck-on-women violence?
My guess is that the next time she sees a 7-foot duck, she’ll put on her big girl pants. Speaking of which, putting on pants is something Donald might consider doing, too. As for Free-Range Kids…this is my night off. Just had to write about the duck. But truly: Free-Range depends on drivers NOT IGNORING pedestrians.
