Move over California, Evergreen is on its
way to matching you. Colorado, we’re
going to prove you can’t capture all the good stuff in the world.
Yep folks, look for good ol’ Evergreen
Alabama to make a wild and lurid attempt at becoming another first for the
great state of Alabama, you know the place where governors buy their way to
safety by appointing attorney generals to senator positions, the place where
these same governors negotiate their way out of jail by pleading to lesser
charges and resigning, the place where bedroom debauchery in all 3 governors
mansions is the word of the week, the place where a cuckholded husband can gain
a cushy, paid position by the governor.
Ah yes, send me Lord, send me, but only to poke fun.
Evergreen (and Conecuh County), not
content to be the sausage capitol of the world, continues to seek its way too
cheap fame by creating another staggering first.
All these first and/or capitols of are
becoming confusing. I suppose if you can’t
be well known for one thing just keep throwing other things out there and hope,
like a ball of Velcro, it’ll stick somewhere.
Just to name a few that come to mind:
SERFI (a proud claim to fame), home of Conecuh Sausage, (great anytime

stump was all the Kickapoo joy juice one needed to attain that artificial high
some seem to seek. I wonder if the City
will administer this program. I’ve heard
Denver is making a great deal of money off their legalization of this product,
perhaps it this kicks off electric bills can come down.
I wonder if this move is made to help keep
one of our most “prominent” citizens in business, after all, it’s only been a
few weeks since the state and federal officers arrested District Three
Commissioner Johnny Andrews for distribution of drugs. It just so happens Andrews serves on boards
with the Mayor and some Council people.
I’m in the wondering mode that perhaps this “medical marijuana” move
might get retroactive approval and the cause for charges against Andrew might
well disappear ‘cause it isn’t illegal now.
Just in case people can’t seem to pick up
what I’m putting down, I’m not a fan of mind altering drugs in any form, liquid
or solid. I can get high on life as it’s
laid out. You all now have the
information, it’s supposedly scheduled to be on the agenda for Tuesday, 2 May
