1. An "Honor" for Alice Martin and a mention
for the Schnauzer
by Roger Schuler of the Legal Schnauzer

And the entry even makes an apparent reference to Legal Schnauzer.
"Unfortunately, it has not been easy to criticize Martin for her antics,"
the report states, "considering she brings charges upon those who do
criticize her, most notably an individual employed at the University of
Alabama."

....Either way, I'm proud to be in good company on Alice's hit list.

I'm even more proud that the report goes on to state that Martin is
"being investigated by several Government organizations on many
levels." That's something you won't read in The Birmingham News.

The report also states that had a straight-shooting attorney general
been in place during Martin's reign, she probably would have "been
disbarred and perhaps punished severely a very long time ago.

2. Mayor's arrest was tactical dud
by John Archibald of the Birmingham News

....See, agents arrested Langford Monday morning. They grabbed
him at his second job, slapped handcuffs on him and dragged him
downtown.

LaPierre walked in the courthouse a few hours later. Blount strode in
the front door after that.

The problem? Langford is black. LaPierre and Blount are white.

D'oh.

It is a mammoth misstep in a case that will be tried as vigorously in the
streets as the courtroom. No matter the intent, this image will resonate
among those who already have doubts about the sure-to-be-divisive
case.

Arrest the black mayor, but let the two white guys stroll into court.

That bell cannot be unrung.
