Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

A Baptist that has read The Bible I've read!

While I know the Religious Reich is fully full of fantasy about boys marrying boys being the main threat to our society, James L. Evans of Auburn First Baptist is continuing what seems like real work that makes me somwhat proud of my Southern Baptist roots. Today's Anniston Star gives him space and ink for "Many poor in need of a jubilee year" that really was amazing to read. Payday loans are simply a blight on this local landscape yet they are abundant here and in many of the poorer areas of Alabama. I recall Gerald "Dino" Dial helping them out yet figure that our Kim S. will use her religion and common sense to confront. I needed this today! I hope his family isn't offended or thinks he's just showing off. Peace ... or War!
