Ducks!

I hate to blame a dead victim, but if this young lady had time to stop her vehicle and address the ducks, “A woman who triggered a deadly collision near Montreal while helping a family of ducks cross the road was convicted on Friday of criminal negligence causing death.” the dead guy had time to stop to avoid hitting a stationary object. Where I live, someone who piles into the rear of a vehicle is almost always in the wrong. Dying doesn’t change that. The only exception would be slamming on the brakes in heavy high speed traffic. The young lady is guilty of a bunch of traffic violations but did not cause anyone to die. There is a principle in law that a Good Samaritan should get a break even if stupidity happens. Oh! Wait, this was in the Province of Quebec where Napoleonic code applies. One is presumed guilty and the prosecutor is also the judge… I view this as further proof there is no intelligent life here.

    I’ve been aware of that for some time. The feed and even the short versions on the front page just strip the HTML/CSS to display the text. It is weird but it sort of provides a decent summary so I won’t bother to change it. Basically, those who want to know what it means can read the post.
