Roots of Distrust, Seeds of Trust

More on that later, but first:
I borrowed this from Sack Sessions. It's an easy way to feel better this weekend.

HOW TO START EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE OUTLOOK
1. Open a new file in your computer.
2. Name it “Jeff Sessions”
3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin.
5. Your PC will ask you……………….
“Do you really want to get rid of “ Jeff Sessions?”
6. Firmly Click “Yes.”
7. Feel better.


Go to Sack Sessions to find reason we need to get rid of Jeff Sessions (as if you don't already know). http://sacksessions.com/


And this from Australia's Herald Sun, via The Birmingham News:


They asked Larry King: How often have you lost your cool with a guest?" Replied King," Not often...I'd have to go all the way back to George Wallace, governor of Alabama. He walked in ponpously to our TV station, Channel 4 in Miami, and said 'I don't see any blacks working here.' And I said, 'They own the station. They're out to lunch.' It started from that, then we started arguing." Way to go, Larry!



"Erica Young is a rare breed. She lives in Bessemer, teaches in Hoover, schools her kids in Homewood, frequests Southside and downtown Birmingham, visits family in Center Point and thrift shops in Midfield. Too many people in the metro area, she thinks stay in their own little worlds." These words begin the front page article in The Birmingham News today about trust. Her comments are part of an article titled Can We Trust One Another, about Birmingham's path forward and the challenges we face. Read the articles here: http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2007/04/can_we_trust_one_another.html




I give a tip of the hat to Erica because she has for years worked to improve our city of Bessemer and now the whole metro area. Thanks Erica. Speaking of improving Bessemer, and the efforts of Erica, the Jonesboro Community Gardens had its second workday last Saturday and we planted more shrubs and mulched the plantings.





In the weeks to come arbors will be built, and a walking path established. During the summer a gazebo will be built. In the meantime, come and enjoy what is there.

I'm glad you enjoyed those seven easy steps. Now we've just got to do it next November.
