>A Big Tuesday in Alabama

All the entertainment is not in New Orleans. In Montgomery the Alabama legislature begins its session today. In fact hold your breath until we see an indication that the Senate will actually accomplish something. Something positive and progressive at that. Now that we know there is no discipline and that raucus politics and sucker punches are OK, who knows what will happen.

And hold your breath while we wait on the results of today’s primary elections. When I voted early this morning in Bessemer about 4 people had requested Republican ballots and about 40 had asked for Democrat ballots. That will come as no surpise to anyone except Dale Jones who once wrote “Obviously you are aware that you and your views are in the EXTREME MINORITY in Bessemer, AL ” in a comment on this blog. Since my views are pretty much in line with the Democratic candidates being voted on today, I would say my views are in the “EXTREME MAJORITY” here in Bessemer. In other words…more people share the common views of the Democratic Party than the Republican Party in Bessemer.

Celebrate Fat Tuesday today.

The Zulu parade has been my favorite.

Time for some Jambalaya and Pecan Cobbler. Happy Mardi Gras
