We find our local news in the national spotlight once again with Brasstown’s traditional New Year’s  Possum Drop affected by a legal ruling resulting from a case brought by PETA about the marsupial-dangling holiday event. This cartoon expresses a somewhat shared opinion that perhaps the traffic-impaired opossum is better, safety-wise, in the confines of the temporary rural equivalent of Times-Square’s New Year’s Eve crystal ball.


I did an earlier cartoon on the controversy the previous year, with a Thanksgiving theme.
