Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Bankers have a bad (although, deserved) rap these days, don’t they? This BBC video shows banker Joel Armstrong of Spokane, Washington, who was nice enough to initiate an intensive bailout (eviction?) of his neighbors, who could no longer stay in their home. His neighbors: a family of mallards [1:10]

Yes, he did the same thing last year, so the video and the story, which is fresh, might look familiar.

    That’s interfering with the process of natural selection in city ducks. On the other hand, if he raises that brood he’ll have a lovely dinner around Christmas.

    There is so much negative in the world that I just love it when I see something like this! Yes maybe it is interfering with the process of natural selection, but don’t we do that everyday in so many parts of our lives. Medical advances have been interfering with natural selection for some time now and for my part I say “Hooray”!!!!! There are so many people that have no feelings for anything, so it is very refreshing to see the “Duckman” once again did his part to show a little kindness to the ducks, but look at all the people that got involved and think of what small part they may play to change something in this world that needs people just to show kindness and compassion!
