This morning brought this letter to my inbox:

Hey SLOG!

My name is Walt Sherman and I’m in charge of the Philadelphia “Shut the Duck UP!” campaign. We are fighting to quiet down the duck boats and make them stop disrespecting everybody. We have a blog and also an online petition.

I recently read Public Intern Steven Blum’s article, Assignment: Yell at the Ducks, and I was hoping to get in touch with him. I thought you guys might be interested in how quieting down the ducks is becoming a NATIONAL movement (check out www.stoptheduck.com!). Also, I wanted to see if he and Jessica, the girl Steven worked with, might want to sign my petition and help out in any other way they could think of.

Thanks for helping to Shut the Duck UP!

Sincerely,
Walt Sherman

Thank you, Walt. Everyone else, if you hate the Ducks, why not help our Philly siblings out by signing the petition?

In closing, please enjoy this inspirational graphic from the Georgia-based StoptheDucks.com:
