Captain Bama Here

First of all, regrets, if any are appropriate, to Alabama's own Jimmy Buffett, as he mentions a Frank Bama/Captain Bama is his Where's Joe Merchant. You can buy the book at Amazon, Powells, Barnes and Noble, and ... Plus Jimmy's got Margaritaville if you have a serious dose of Parrothead. Mr. Buffett I've bought your books and albums and ... please forgive me if I've sinned. Plus you've got more money than God!

This blog is about my often backwards, partially blighted, and yet still beautiful Alabama. Yet, these rantings are mostly about how the Big Mules seem to think she's their bank. Progressivism is the default angle yet you can't take on the Bama bosses without a little populism mixed in. Admittedly leftist leaning for many issues, Captain Bama (blogging usually as Captain Plaid on most national and international issues) will craft a mix of mostly Alabama history and politics and law and ... into what he hopes will sooner or later be a rather tasty blend. Count on the Captain!
