An Eye for an Eye

Rash of Alabama news hitting the national wire lately....

No Lurleen was she.....

Former Alabama first lady Cornelia Wallace dies:

"MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Former Alabama first lady Cornelia Wallace, who threw herself over Gov. George C. Wallace when he was shot in a 1972 assassination attempt, has died in Sebring, Fla. She was 69."

I'm very much down with this 'podunk' town. Though, shouldn't you create the renewable energy before you create the renewable energy museum.

Hell, close enough. Give 'em the cash!

Why a Tiny Alabama Town Wants a $375 Million Chunk of the Stimulus:

"There's certainly no denying that Edwardsville has big ambitions. Through the various proposals, which include a renewable energy museum, scenic railroad, and vineyards, these small Alabama communities envision themselves becoming a cutting-edge demonstration project for energy sustainability and a hub for tourism.

'I know we look like some little Podunk town, and by the census, we are,' Phillips says. 'But we really think we've done some amazingly progressive things in the past two years.'"

Couple of things here. Clean coal? Everybody who bought that load, raise your hand. If you're hand's raised, you, ma'am or sir, are a dumbass.

Also: TVA transformed the South. It supplied both of my grandfathers with means to support and raise families. TVA hasn't seen many upgrades to its infrastructure. A bunch of band aides but no serious overhaul.

Expect more of this unless infrastructure is fixed.

In 'What the hell is wrong with people' news....

Give your wife a kidney then she goes and cheats on you. Hello country song.

NY man demands estranged wife pay him for kidney


I don't think she did much research on this. That, or she had a massive supply of Visine.

Dude was sick, but his eyes were crystal clear.

Woman allegedly tries to kill hubby with eye drops:

"A 40-year-old southwest Missouri woman is accused of trying to kill her husband by spiking his tea with a half bottle of Visine eye drops."

He'd previously done the same with his other eye.

A little Monday Morning Gross out for ya.

Texas death row inmate pulls out eye, eats it:

"HOUSTON – A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye and told authorities he ate it.
