Another council member quits, town can’t get quorum
Roland Collins sat silently in the back of the Argo Town Council chamber with a brown paper bag over his head.
Collins said he wore the bag – once a gimmick used by a stand-up comic and then adopted by disgruntled sports fans – to illustrate his disgust with the council. He called himself ‘the unknown citizen.’
Apparently, nobody will stay on the Argo Town Council. But with constituents like this, who can blame them?
The Birmingham News talks about the failure of a “bipartisan” group to take control of the Alabama Senate. “Bipartisan” here, as in Washington, means that Republicans are in charge with the help of a few Democratic quislings. Screw that.
