Did You Know - Crazy in Alabama

My mother had a theory about why there was always persistent fighting and political unrest in the mid-east. She said it was due to the constant heat. Her claim was founded on the belief that people who are too warm all of the time lose their patience and start acting ugly. Do you suppose that could be true? Do you suppose it could also explain some of the less-than-rational behavior of many Americans who live in the south?

From the Los Angeles Times...

The Alabama Department of Homeland Security has taken down a website it operated that included gay-rights and antiwar organizations in a list of groups that could include terrorists.

The website identified different types of terrorists and included a list of groups it suggested could spawn terrorists. The list also included environmentalists, animal rights advocates and abortion opponents.
