I had a 4,000-word post ready to go about this story, but you know what? I’m not even going to bother.
You win, Alabama. I give up. Just continue to embarrass yourself day in and day out. It’s not like you can fall any further in the national rankings in every relevant metric.
*Except for obesity and religiosity…that’s where we’re Vikings!
I’m not even particularly angry about this story. Just resigned to the fact that this is standard operating procedure in a state that seems to have been designed from the ground up to fail its citizens.
So congrats, Alabama. You’ve officially converted one more citizen into a person looking for the first possible chance to get the hell outta Dodge.
