Baby steps

In their great beneficence, Alabama legislators approved a bill earlier this month to allow county commissions to regulate things like noise and weeds and stray animals. But only two county commissions. And only if the counties' residents vote to give commissioners that power. Seriously, don't you just want to wait on the Legislature to handle that kind of stuff?

Gov. Bob Riley grinned, bore it, called it "limited home rule," and signed it into law Thursday.
