    . . .I am going to by all of Alabama and kick everyone out. What I will do with the other 399 million, I haven't figured out yet.

      I'm not from there, but I liked Alabama. Well, not the politics, but I drove through Alabama on an 80 degree day in April with all my car windows open. Alabama is the sweetest smelling state in the union when spring flowers are in bloom. If you must chase out all the evil wingnuts, fine, but can those of us who live in the frozen north still come and visit Alabama in March and April?

        Missed the spring flowers. Camped next to a lake. On the far side of the lake was a power plant. . .the most godforsaken lump of twisted steel you have ever seen. They didn't even try to make it look good. Right across the river from the State Park. Went to town and bought some pasta. Made spaghetti that night and the pasta was unpalatable.. Looked on the box and it was locally made. Who the hell can't make pasta? Went into town to get dinner and all the places we went into were filthy shitholes.

        Missed the spring flowers. I'm sure they were lovely.

          When you're in the South, eat the barbecue instead of the pasta. And don't worry about what the restaurant looks like. Some of the finest food in America is cooked in buildings that would be condemned here in the slightly more affluent corners of America.
