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!

Anniston Star Video of Roanoke "Justice" Center

The Anniston Star provides a video and gallery of what they label as Roanoke's "Justice Center". I'm going to continue to call it "The Spaceport" but "Revenue Court" works as well. Do we need a jail and a municipal court and a police force and ... ? Certainly! Remedying the dreadful conditions in the old jail was the absolute right thing to do, and not just becasue a civil rights case was long overdue. I just hope Roanoke will not "celebrate" this facilty too much. "Justice" cannot be assigned to a place but rather the attitudes of those that serve our community from this location. Peace ... or War!
