Redeye's Random Thoughts

Haiti on my mind. Hate to say it, hate to think it, but the aftermath of the disaster in Haiti is beginning to remind me of the aftermath of Katrina. What's taking so long for real help to get to the people who are suffering and dying? I mean if the media can get there, why can't the army, navy, airforce and marines etc? Speaking of the media, they are already starting the natives are getting violent spin. Remember "that John Wayne dude" from Katrina? Maybe they need to get him off CNN and send him to Haiti.

Birmingham politricks as usual. Due to the conviction of former Birmingham mayor Larry Langford a run off election is scheduled for Tuesday, January 19th to determine who will take his place, culminating the end of an ugly, bitter, nasty, hard fought campaign between candidates Patrick Cooper and William Bell. I don't know who is going to win, but I feel sorry for the residents of Birmingham if this is what they have to choose from.

The Alabama budget must be saved from Paul Hubbert and the AEA according to gop senate hopefuls. That's their strategy? To run against Paul Hubbert? It's Paul Hubbert's fault there is a budget crisis? Who knew?

Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday celebration in Scottsboro, AL. You read it right. The home of the infamous Scottsboro Boys trial will host a celebration in honor of Dr. King at the Scottsboro Boys museum and cultural center.

Now isn't this special! Fifth district U.S. Rep. Parker Griffith (r. party switcher) is greeted with open arms by his new party. Speaking of the party switcher, I guess it depends on what the meaning of "I will return all democratic donations" IS.

Where are the police with tasers when we need them? I mean, really. Scott Brown supporters are some really nice people aren't they? I really can't say enough nice things about them. :)
