How often does a newspaper fire a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter?
As nonsensical as it sounds, al.com/The Birmingham News pulled off the unusual feat by ushering reporter Joey Kennedy out the door recently. Veronica Kennedy, Joey's wife, broke the news on her Facebook page and said he received no severance pay, just a final paycheck and notice that his insurance would end on February 28.Left in Alabama, the Informed. Involved. Progressive. Blog of record, has the nerve to blame the Alabama Democratic Party, and the Alabama Education Association for the Decline and Fall of the ADP and the AEA, they enabled.
In 2010, many Alabama Democratic candidates forgot their base, ran from their party, and failed to run on any issues that mattered to Alabama families.Eye tried to tell some of Y'all, A party divided will NOT stand. But did you listen? Noooo. That would have been too much like right(pun intended).
What Nancy Worley said all the damn way!
Worley said in a phone interview Monday it was unfortunate that Kennedy decided to resign and “take his toys and go home,” but she feels that people will return to the Alabama Democratic Party as they see the policies of the Republican super majority in the Legislature “taking care of the rich” and how those decisions affect them.
“We’re looking at a golden opportunity in the upcoming election in 2014, because quite frankly the Republicans have so many negative situations they have created for the state that I think people are going to feel the pinch in their pocketbook and they’re going to vote Democratic, like they once did,” she said.
Psst President Obama...please read this letter in preparation for your speech in #Selma on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
Dear President Obama,Read On. Read Often.
This letter is in part to let you know that we are proud of you and your leadership. We are proud of the positive images you and your family provide for the nation in general and African Americans in particular.
However, we also write to share serious concerns voiced by many African Americans. We feel that an open letter will stimulate a broader dialogue.
