You know what we don't hear enough politicians discuss: their thoughts on consuming road kill. Finally we have a man willing to address such matters of importance, and his name is Tink Nathan. The 72-year-old Republican candidate is seeking to represent District 53 in the Texas House of Representatives.
Nathan thinks it's unjust that his state outlaws eating road kill. He points out that other states have nothing in the books to outlaw feasting on a raccoon tenderized by an 18-wheeler. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department spokesman Tom Harvey, who clearly has more sense than Nathan, says his agency is neutral on the subject but that "There are obvious public health and safety issues."
