Yet another sign I am no longer in the deep south...


I keep having to pinch myself. Discussing job opportunities with a counselor here in the great Midwest.

Me: "I see you have job listings under "human rights". What's that about?"

Counselor: "The state's Department of Human Rights."

Me, with severe understatement: "We don't have that in Alabama."

  4. In Ape City we have a "Department of Human Affairs". It's a little different. Exterminations and lobotomies, mostly.

  7. true dat, moioci, but Shunra nailed it...Alabamians have been traditionally discriminated against BY the state. There's a Southern Poverty Law Center for a reason....

    Thanks for all the kind words and welcome, folks. I feel very much at home.
