Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford wants city to quadruple city support for Birmingham Zoo, proposes a 1 million gallon aquarium – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com
This is fine, I suppose. I like the zoo. I like the idea of bringing elephants back to the zoo. I don’t know about the aquarium, though BMLL points out that it would only be half the size of Atlanta’s aquarium. There’s just one little problem. I’ll let city councilwoman Valerie Abbott have the floor:
“Certainly I don’t know anyone who’s not in favor of supporting city amenities, especially the state’s largest tourist attraction,” she said. “But as always we need to know where the money’s coming from. The little voice in my head is saying, ‘Where are we getting all this money?'”
It’s kind of weird, is all.
