An Overpopulation of Stupidity 

I think it's great that we are all having democratic discourse regarding the geese problem across our town's newspapers and media outlets.

I think it's great that we are all having democratic discourse regarding the geese problem across our town's newspapers and media outlets. On both sides of the issue, all seem to agree on the fact that the geese are largely here in unnatural numbers because people feed them. Numerous articles and letters to the editor have been written asking people to adhere to common sense (that comes to most of us naturally) and not feed the ducks and geese. This, along with the letter to the editor last week by Ms. Schulz highlighting how 2 ignoramus parents helped their kids to catch frogs at a lake and drag them home in zip lock bags, made me realize that most of the people who would feed geese or suffocate wildlife in zip lock bags are either illiterate, stupid, or both and unfortunately, aren't reading newspapers and getting the message. While I was personally in favor of thinning the geese herd, perhaps a better and more efficient campaign might just be to kill the dumb people.
