Ducking the Issue

In today's mailbox:

• Our new New York state voter registration. These featured the punnily punctuated slogan "You're Right To Vote" over an image of the Statue of Liberty.

• The local "Pennysaver" classified ads paper, currently promoting the second annual Duck Race to End Racism. (I am not making this up.) On June 12, local third graders will float thousands of multi-colored plastic ducks down a creek "for fun and a chance to win diversity curriculum materials for their school."

It's come to this. Curriculum materials are reserved for those with champion ducks.

One cannot simply duck racism. One can, however, take a gander at a person's other qualities. Unless they're chicken.

Stop quacking me up or I'll cry fowl. (Sorry, but you asked for it.)
