Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

North Carolinian Town‘s New Year’s Eve Opossum Drop Under PETA Attack

(By Liz Klimas, TheBlaze.com) - In Brasstown, North Carolina, residents aren’t glued to their TV screen on New Years Eve to watch the Times Square ball drop. They are at Clay’s Corner to watch the annual Opossum Drop.

But that could all change if PETA gets its way. USA Today reports that PETA has called Clay Logan’s Opossum Drop, which has been happening for 18 years, “cruel and illegal.”

The opossum is not dropped in a free fall, but is lowered in a garland-covered Plexiglas container.
