I know Alabama suffers from politicians who win votes by saying they believe every word of the Bible, but at least we know all hope is not lost in that state.
Amanda Gulledge has a beautiful piece up at Salon about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Gulledge also happened live across the street from Gov. George Wallace.
Eddie was Wallace’s “helper.” Eddie was also a black man. I would sit and watch Eddie cut the grass. I would also “enhance” the situation by practicing my “southern politician” dialect.
And you can’t miss the cute poem she wrote when she was nine.
