Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry for the blog silence.  Work has been crazy this week, which is a good thing but really cuts down on writing time.  If there’s a story you want to discuss, feel free to use the comments section.  JeffCo’s impending implosion, Richard Scrushy’s upcoming testimony in his civil trial, heck, even the weather — sunny now but rain by the weekend.  (Meanwhile my tomato and pepper plants still sit in their pots, waiting to go in the ground.)

What’s on your mind?

    We have baby tomatoes on our plants!!!! Get yours in the ground. Do you need me to come over and plant?

  2. Jeff (no, the other one) says:

    “In a separate poll of 600 general election voters, [Artur] Davis said he held a 5 point lead over Republican Bradley Byrne, the head of the state’s two-year college system. Byrne, who is expected to announce his candidacy for governor next week, trailed Davis 38 percent to 43 percent.”

    Yeah, Nov. 2010 is way off, but Byrne’s backers must be thrilled with that.*

    *if he announces he’s running next week!

    Thanks, Joe! I’d be too embarrassed for you to see what passes for a garden here. :)

    Jeff, I think a Byrne-Davis race, if it comes to that, will be very interesting. Based on some comments I’ve seen over at Danny’s, there are conservatives who think Davis is a far-left ideologue (ha!)and Byrne is a Democrat in Republican clothing. Artur does very well with mostly-white suburban audiences (note below that he drew a much bigger crowd speaking to the Vestavia Chamber last summer than Byrne did just a couple of weeks ago), but when it comes down to the voting booth, they may still lean toward a moderate Republican. OTOH, a third-party challenge from the right (assuming the candidate could meet Alabama’s restrictive ballot requirements) could hurt Byrne in the general.

    Of course, this assumes Davis and Byrne win their respective primaries.
