Museum a possibility for Rickwood- al.com

BMLL wants to put up a museum celebrating the Negro leagues at Rickwood Field. Now, I agree that something should be done about Rickwood, and I’m glad he doesn’t want to bulldoze it like Boutwell. However, there already is a Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, in Kansas City.

Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford believes he’s the target of a federal criminal investigation- al.com

I’ve basically been ignoring this… It has to do with a bond issue during the period BMLL (I’m going to use that from now on, short for “Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford”, which is what the News always uses in its headlines) was head of the county commission. I don’t understand what it is he’s supposed to have done, but I think it had something to do with kickbacks. I dunno. Anyway, this is the Birmingham US Attorney’s Office, so even if they bring charges they’ll just mess it up, and I don’t see how Montgomery could bail them out this time.
