Here’s something interesting for your Thursday afternoon; a one-man (I assume) pothole activist armed with a can of spray paint is getting results. According to the Manchester Evening News, the mystery crusader is drawing attention to potholes by drawing male appendages around them. I try to include a photo with every blog post, but I’m not doing so this time, for good reason.
Not surprisingly, his unconventional approach is spurring street crews to repair the potholes as quick as possible, sometimes within 48 hours of being “decorated” with the drawings. Citizens seem to approve and someone has even started a Facebook fan page for the crusader. Local officials aren’t so amused though, with one calling the drawings stupid, insulting to residents and offensive to families walking young children to school.
