Alabama on the air

NBC's Brian Williams plans to anchor his nightly newscast live from Birmingham on Monday. His report will focus on efforts to revitalize the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, site of a 1963 church bombing that killed four black girls.

An NBC producer said the segment's name is "Birmingham Reconciliation," which gives me hope that Williams will try to show the progress that Alabama has made in race relations since the days of fire hosings and attack dogs. I also fear, though, that the recent rejection of Amendment 2 might be about to get some more national attention.
