Blogging on Birmingham

There's big news out of Alabama. The very conservative Birmingham Daily News has come out against the death penalty. The paper began explaining its decision yesterday when it published the first of an unprecedented five consecutive editorials. The second editorial followed today.

The blog of our Alabama affiliate, Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty, is publishing each of the editorials. Go here to read up on this exciting and significant development.

i gotta tell ya that this is pretty huge, i mean i've heard atlanta referred to as the nyc of teh south (apologies to all new yorkers) but never birmingham...

and the grand dame of abolition down there - e.b. - has obtained what, more than 500 resolutions???

i gotta admit we feel a little shamed here in tennessee but right proud of bein' her neighbor...

Hey, Y'all,

Dale Wisely writing from Birmingham. We are beyond thrilled about these editorials. They are running a total of six this week and they are carefully researched, painstaking in detail, and beautifully well-reasoned. And one is even tempted to think that they could actually change somebody's mind.
