Reviving road kill

A couple of items caught my eye this morning amid the banal trash that is slopped up on the plate as daily news.

Man tries to revive roadkill.
US police have charged a Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen trying to resuscitate a long-dead opossum along a highway

another saw Wolfe attempting to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation

the animal already had been dead a while

The things people do when pissed. Never ever will live that down.

The other article? Similar vein - but man is the roadkill in this case. He just has not admitted it yet. And there is alcohol involved.

the mayor urinated outside his council building after drinking at a nearby bar, then drove himself home

It's been clear for some time that Mr Williams is under a lot of stress and is not handling it well

Further inquiries that evening at GPK revealed the mayor was a "very frequent visitor", "possibly one of our most regulars", said one waitress.

WhaleOil will have delicious fun with that story this fine morning.

Hide said the latest incident involving Williams was cause for the mayor to "consider his options".

"I think Mayor Williams should consider his options and whether this sort of behaviour carrying on is in the best interests of North Shore and Auckland."

The last word from the SuperCity roadkill architect himself.
