Another Small Pleasure Gone

One of life's small pleasures has bitten the dust. For as long as I can remember, folks have fed the ducks at Hamilton Lake. Here the McBride family partakes in the feeding ritual in 2000.

Now someone has decided that feeding is a bad idea and has posted signs asking people not to feed the ducks and geese.

I suspect this is to discourage the geese as much as it is for their long-term benefit, and I'm thinking the birds would not have supported this step had they be given a vote. I wonder if the folks who backed the Don't Feed The Geese movement would support a similar tough-love approach to human welfare programs?
