Koi enthusiast competes finny friends in fish shows – al.com
Of course there are fish shows. Hey, it\’s no dumber than professional bass fishing. You think these guys and the bass fishermen get into rumbles? I hope so.
The first inhabitant of Buck Williams’ Midfield fish pond was a goldfish named Lucky, who experienced a classic example of being in the right place at the right time about 30 years ago.
“I was at the state fair and I found him flopping in the grass in the parking lot. The bowl was nearby so I went to the restroom and put some water in it. He survived that chlorinated water,” Williams said. “I never knew what happened to Lucky. He disappeared (in the crowd) as I got more fish.”
I don’t know how to tell you this, Buck, but I’m guessing Lucky got eaten.
Seriously, I think this could be the next big thing. Maybe Westminster could spin off a fish show, put it on TV.

Birmingham Public Library has reopened its search for a director – al.com
Apparently, some people were complaining that they didn’t know that the library was looking for a director. I mean, I’m on the email lists and such, so of course I knew about it, but I don’t understand why the community at large really needs to know. This is a professional position, and it’s not like there are lots of people with the necessary prerequisites just hanging around.
Federal probe involves Alabama Attorney General Troy King’s office – al.com
Even better, Alice Martin — “Karl Rove’s Girl” — has to run the investigation. It’s fun when the Democrats are in charge. And even better, Stan Pate is involved. I would love for Stan to take Scrushy’s place at Talladega.
