You were the two young men who stopped on Santiago Road early on Tuesday morning. One was driving in a black BMW, and the other, arriving 15 minutes later, was in a Corvette. You got out of your cars to help a mother duck and her six or eight ducklings cross the road safely. Even though you were obviously on your way to your work, you stopped traffic and tried to help the duck family without being too intrusive. You took such care to herd them all up to and over the curb—real men care for helpless animals! There are some really nice people living in Villa Park.
