Yesterday, a grown man of 36 years of age had to be rescued from waist-deep mud by the Vallejo Fire Department after he jumped over a railing lining a waterfront promenade along the Mare Island Strait. Luckily for the man, who was facing incoming tides, the bankrupt city of Vallejo could still afford the ladder and harness needed to get him unstuck. No word on why the man decided to jump, but if it was "just for kicks" there were probably some more exciting things he could have been doing in Vallejo. [CCTimes]
