How did I wind up here?

OK, so the legislature overrode the governor's veto of legislation that would allow guns in bars. And the legislature is considering a law to permit guns in public parks. Of course, you can't buy wine in the grocery store; no, you have to go to the liquor store (which can sell only wine, high alcohol content beer and liquor and absolutely nothing else, not even a bottle opener).

Now, evidently a legislative staffer sent an email from an official email address which contained a keepsake photo collage of all the presidents. Unfortunately, the picture following George W. Bush is simply a pair of eyes staring out from a void of darkness (otherwise known as a spook, which is Southern-speak for you know what).

I don't know about the rest of the state, but Memphis has churches on every corner (together with the attached "Christian" school aka don't send your children to school with "those folks"). I have a feeling most of the rest of the state is the same.
