Why is the assassination of President Obama being used as a teaching tool in Alabama? The teacher, in northwest Jefferson County at Corner High School, was apparently using the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama as an example for teaching geometry to his math students. This being Alabama, of course the teacher was not taken into custody or charged with a crime. He's not even getting fired. His superintendent said, "It was extremely poor judgment on his part, and a poor choice of words."

If it were Bush, the guy would be under a jail to this day. Can anybody say "double standard"?

Alabama gets new points in the Blind White Boys game. What will South Carolina or Oklahoma do to catch up?

This is a hard story to believe. Can anyone truly be so stupid? I'll have to google news search this one.

Your regionalism or stereotyping people who live in a geographical location is almost as bad as racism, which you are guilty of. You even have a hint of racism against whites in your comment.

Alabama, South Carolina and Oklahoma are known for taking the lead in opposing Jim Crow laws and lynchings. They just got bad press.

Those states have always been bastions of the progressive ideals of human and civil rights. They just continue to get bad press.

May I tell you another fairytale?

Keystone would be way worse than we thought!

We already know that the Keystone XL pipeline is a disaster waiting to happen. But, it turns out that the impact of that tar sands pipeline could be even worse than we thought. According to a new study by the Stockholm Environmental Institute, Keystone could add four times more carbon pollution to our atmosphere than the State Department originally estimated.
