Roy Brock: For possum to ponder

For possum to ponder

The dilemma facing the opossum in the small town of Brasstown was that it can be killed but cannot be lowered in a humane way to bring in the New Year. Sounds like the U.S. destroying a village in the Vietnam war in order to save it! Give the poor opossum a chance and I suspect it would choose the free ride as a celebrity rather than being shot at or maybe run over by a vehicle.
