Recently an email arrived with the following message, in regard to Lindy's piece about internet addiction:

Hi Lindy,

I have ducklings that are scared of me, so I read to them in a gentle, soothing voice. Today I read them some Lindy West. Please enjoy.

Normally we wouldn't share this sort of self-referential thing, but BABY DUCKS. And if ever there were a day when we needed baby ducks.
