Thank GOP for Mississippi

Dem beats Republican in a race that may predict November – CNN.com

So, Mississippi has three Democratic congressmen (out of four) and we have two (out of seven). That’s just embarrassing. We need to win both open seats this time, guys.

Thanks for that, guys. Really.

Five members of the city council are mad

Birmingham City Council votes to take $7.9 million from school sidewalk projects, spend on Fair Park renovation- al.com

The council voted 5-3 with an abstention to take money to repair sidewalks and instead spend it on… Idiocy.

The city’s money is better spent as part of the $55 million needed to redevelop Fair Park and Five Points West with an indoor track, equestrian facilities and an Olympic-sized swimming pool and stadium, Langford said.

Honestly, I still don’t know what all this is for. I have no idea. I do know that whatever it’s for, it won’t be worth it.
