Well, it’s the last day of 2013, and there’s only one way to ring in the new year: dropping a possum!
A Superior Court judge will allow Brasstown’s annual Possum Drop to go ahead despite opposition from animal rights activists.
You may recall that in one of his first acts as governor McCrory signed a bill into law that allowed the return of the Possum Drop, and in one of my first posts as blogger I wrote up an extensive retelling of the saga, which you might (or might not) find amusing. This ruling marks the end of the legal shenanigans from the likes of PETA , and so the beloved hillbilly tradition is back in earnest.
I hope you guys had a good 2013! I thought it was pretty sweet. See ya next year.
