Running gear

This chap made international news late last year when a Tauranga High Court judge reversed his previous District Court conviction for offensive behaviour. 
Tip-toeing through the daisies, he is the picture of innocence. Suggesting that the woman who originally came upon him in the wild and called the police was a tight-lipped, prune-faced killjoy. 
Maybe she was. But I'm not inclined to condemn her out of hand. I'd be startled too if I were alone in an isolated spot and Naked Jogger ran out of the undergrowth. Startled and a bit scared. 
Roll on the day when we women can be comfortably naked in public without attracting unwelcome attention - from the law or anyone else.
