Omni-Science and the Human Destiny - see www.HOPE-CARE.org. Please also read

The Duck Man

SPOKANE, Wash. -- It might look ordinary enough: A mother duck nesting on a ledge
in downtown Spokane and a banker watching from his second floor window. But when
the ducks hatched and the mother needed to get her ducklings to fresh water, a big problem
became obvious. The dozen day-old ducks couldn't follow. They were stuck on the ledge
about 15 to 20 feet up, nervously pacing back and forth.

Enter Banker Joel Armstrong...
