    Tommy Battle, Lewis Morris And Systemic Municipal Corruption

    That a jailer can’t see someone is dying because it’s too expensive to bother with, that a poorly trained police officer finds it more efficient to kill someone wielding a knife because it’s “in accordance with Departmental policies,” and he can get away with it, that gang violence in the jail can go totally unchecked allowing an innocent victim to be brutally murdered, that the promotion of Lewis Morris Jr. actually stands as an endorsement of child molestation and torture… are all the exemplary results of the attitude that Tommy Battle embraces.

    What About Kenneth Shipp?

    I’m surprised that Shipp’s attorney’s didn’t pursue a temporary insanity defense. Although we know that the standard of insanity defense in the State of Alabama is so high, that it is virtually never successful.

Since marriage doesn’t have to be about procreation, isn’t it possible to love more than one person at a time? Would Judge Ginny deny equal protection to group love? Ain’t she a good hippie?

    Alabama Brody Bill Ultimate Legal Hypocrisy

    Never underestimate the histrionic whims of an Alabama politician. Or, for that matter, the histrionic whims of the entire Alabama legislature. Indeed, Alabama has just set the highest standard for the worst law possible.

    PUFF! The Wizard Of Journalism

    Wow. There are times in my challenged way of life that I stop and think how extraordinarily lucky I am to be a journalist at this time. I am not a newspaper man. I most certainly am not the Editor & Publisher of the Daily Oxymoron. An oxymoron unto itself, but all things in context. […]

    Critiquing The Speaking

    Thank you for joining me in last night’s debate. I am pleased to announce, based on arbitrary polling by www.tocc.tv: JIM CASEY WON THE DEBATE! ABOUT OBAMA Obama did what he’s been doing throughout the campaign. He stayed back, stayed cool, carried the ball, and let Romney take enough rope to hang himself – which […]
