Growing up in a small mill town, my siblings and I have been surrounded by eccentric characters and seamy individuals all of our lives. There was Beedie Beaner, the bald, toothless, lady school bus driver. There were the old lesbians, Miss Frier and Miss Bush (honest), who romantically died within three days of each other. And then there was Super Duck, the retarded product of an incestuous relationship, who rode his bicycle everywhere, often spotted 35 or more miles away. Supe was struck by a semi today, departing this world on his beloved bike. Like E.T. sailing across the moon.
