The Crimson White Online – UA parking soaks up federal funds

Richard Shelby, of course. $18 million in federal money for parking decks on the Alabama campus in the last three years; $1.5 million for the new campus shuttle service. The library, meanwhile, has to get by with the school’s own funds. Typical.

Drought slams farms

There Is No Such Thing As Global Warming, of course, but the people who say that it’s not financially feasible to do something about it (if it existed) pretend that there’s no economic cost from it. But tell that to the corn farmers of Alabama, who are looking at harvesting 25 bushels of corn per acre; in a good year, it would be 150. And much of what they do harvest is fit only for animals. Though the way things are going, we’ll probably be happy for whatever we can get.
