A session more special than the rest

I can think of no finer way to drop $110,000 of public money than to convene a special session of the Alabama Legislature.

It can be productive. It offers loads of largely unintentional entertainment. And it's a second chance to go gavel-to-gavel without marijuana-related drama, or flooding of epic proportions, or editorials with epically bad legislative flood puns.

The arguments for a special session may seem obvious, but like most things, they look more compelling in a bulleted list:
Whatever happens, we should make sure it occurs during the most stifling, unbearable stretch of August. The one that proves that a bunch of liberal liberals and lazy polar bears and the Hawaiian birth certificate industry have orchestrated an international conspiracy to invent so-called "global warming."

And the one that's least likely to bring flood waters back.

Welcome back. Too long between posts. More more more more.

To be called "dark" by King Cockfight is like receiving high praise for your horror fiction from Edgar Allan Poe. Or maybe H.P. Lovecraft. Or a friend of a friend of Stephen King, at the least.

Mr. Dobbs, you may be pleased with the coming accelerated, though still informal, posting schedule. Or not. People get what they pay for around here.
