Hoping sanity prevails

Alabama is a strange and wonderful place. It would be a great place if it were not for our politics.  Today, we are voting in a special election to replace Senator Sessions who is now over the U.S. Justice Department.

We can choose between a man who helped convict the of the men involved  in the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in Birmingham during the turbulent Civil Rights ere in the 1960s. The other candidate is a man accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl when he was 30.

Alabama has made international news. Late night TV has had a field day.

I was at the polling place a few minutes after it opened this morning. I did my part.

I'm hoping sanity prevails in the place I call home.

  2. Doug Jones: “This entire race has been about dignity and respect." Let's hope we see more of that everywhere.

    1. You are right. I can't believe I made that mistake. Shelby is the other state senator that would note vote for Moore.
      Doug Jones won and I am so happy.

  5. Even though I rarely talk politic online, I was hoping for Doug Jones because there's no way I would vote for a child molester. I'm so glad Roy Moore didn't win but he wants a recount. He doesn't want to admit to his crime and now he refuses to believe that he lost. He's showing some Trump attitude.

  6. I admire those who vote. Nothing worst than someone that does not vote then blurt their opinions on social media. You did a good thing Rick.
