I saw this in the "Odd News" online, about the only news of the times I find worthwhile reading that isn't doom & gloom, depressing, disheartening and basically written to put you into a funk for the day.
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) The "squirrelly" configuration of a western Pennsylvania road helped cause a state road crew to paint a double-yellow line over a dead raccoon. Pennsylvania DOT spokesman John Ambrosini says paint crews usually have a foreman on the job who clears away any dead animals before the paint-spraying truck equipment passes by. This crew didn't have a foreman and the equipment was too big to turn around in traffic, remove the animal and repair the paint.
And it is for things like this I enjoy travelling the back roads of America.
