Squirrels at the crosswalk: Common sense needed


I suppose it would be helpful if, not only the vision impaired, but all pedestrians at every crosswalk and intersection, could be told again and again by the calm and disembodied voice at Chestnut and Main, “Walk light is on at all crossings. Walk light is on at all crossings.”

But still, I would like to hope that all of us, pedestrians and drivers, could figure out, without instruction from a light pole, how to cross each other’s paths with the civility and sociability of, well — squirrels.
