City in Chains

Residents fight for their beloved city- al.com

Words emblazoned on the glass door of the Lipscomb City Hall describe the west Jefferson County city as “A City of Change.”

I’d like to say that when I first scanned this, I read that as “City of Charges”. I mean, you guys can fight all you want, but you elected these bums. The ones on the city council, anyway. Nobody ever seems to finish a term as mayor.

Anyway, some people have gotten so desperate that they want to unincorporate, or even — get this — merge with Birmingham or even Bessemer. That is bad.
