A glitch is preventing us from gathering the morning news headlines like we usually do. We are working with the hosting company to get it worked out. Sooner rather than later, I hope!
Enjoy your day today.
I have appreciated email and other inquiries from folks who have noted that I have been much less involved in the site of late. The site is a labor of love that I greatly enjoy, and I am glad that folks understand when other obligations and responsibilities of my life must take precedence. There [...]
Here is a reminder that you can hear the proceedings from our state’s legislative chambers in archived audio recordings found right here at the Political Parlor.
I am pleased to tell you that Zac McCrary, a Democratic pollster with the firm of Anzalone Liszt Research, has agreed to offer Parlor readers his occasional take on the 2012 presidential race and perhaps, if we are lucky, other topics as well. Many readers know (and most Alabamians probably don’t) that Alabama is [...]
The list of most clicked posts is always interesting to me if not so meaningful. In recent months, the results have gotten odder and odder. I guess spiders or bots or spammers or I-don’t-know what are skewing the results, because the most clicked post of 2010 was the blog’s very first post in 2005. [...]
With thanks to Stephen Jackson of the Openbama project for the steer. It appears the Alabama Senate will try streaming video of its sessions via this page. Note the caveats and disclaimers carefully. From here, it appears it will be a microsoft asf video stream . Stream should be capturable so [...]
A new feature… Theme for a Day!
Either that, or the software upgrade is not playing well with my usual theme (even though it worked fine on my test blog).
We’ll make do with this look for now and sort it out later.
Update: Seems to be fixed.
Nick Beadle is back with us this week and look for his new column here this morning. He is posting every other week now and will keep that up until other obligations consume him.
Also, I appreciate Brian Krogsgard’s willingness to come on board to offer some posts during the election season when issues [...]
I am pleased to tell you of a new addition to the Parlor. Alabama native (and newlywed!) Nicholas Beadle is a former political reporter starting law school in D.C. this fall. Apparently you can take the boy out of Alabama but you can’t take Alabama out of the boy, as he is willing to [...]
The State Democratic Executive Committee meets this morning. The Minority Caucus meets first, the full meeting starts at 11, and for extra fun the air-conditioning at the hotel is out.
SDEC member Richard Allen Smith intends to live-Tweet the meeting. He is rockrichard on Twitter, and even if you are not a Twitter user [...]
I happened to notice last night that attempts to post comment spam (ads for online pharmacies, travel sites, and much seedier offerings that would appear among the site’s comments if not blocked) have exploded for this site. Last fall, legitimate comments outnumbered attempts to post comment spam by about 4 to 1. Now, spam [...]
