  1. In Democratic circles it has been widely circulated that Folsom entering the race is a forgone conclusion. Though I don’t know for sure, that is what I have been hearing for sometime.

  2. It looks as if the Alabama DEC realizes our eminent Democrat controlled state legislature is not capable of handling the eminent domain issue in our own constitution.

  3. A lot of families should fade from the state; however, The Folsom family is not one of them. Gov. Folsom, Sr. was far ahead of this state and nation when he was governor. Road construction, equal rights, and one man one vote— all amazing for a white southern man in that time. Gov Folsom, Jr. removed the confederate flag from the capitol (which had been put there by Wallace Sr to defy the federal government) and brought Mercedez to Alabama. In an abbreviated term of office, those two acts alone are enough to make someone, at least a good governor. They could easily be the beginning of the new industries coming to Alabama. The Wallace family is another story: The only thing they ever did that had a positive outcome was to beat back marchers as they attempted to cross the bridge in Selma. That act alone brought the attention of the world to Alabama and the federal government had no choice but to intervene. Some say that Wallace Sr changed later in his life. I am sure he did. I will too when the devil begins to bid on my soul. The sad thing about little Big Jim Folsom Jr running for Lt. Gov. is that he is not running for Gov.
