Oops! The president’s coming to town
Pity, pity, poor North Carolina. It’s in a world of hurt. But we can’t fret about that right now. Alabama has its own quandaries. The state Legislature is, well, what can we say? Dysfynctional? An embarrassment? Dominated by a few demagogues and knuckle-dragging Neanderthals? (And we thought it was bad when Lt. Gov. Steve Windom found another use for a jug and Sen. Charles Bishop delivered a punch on the chamber floors.) Roy Moore is on the ballot. Luther Strange, the state attorney general, wants Alabama to opt out. Of everything. Jefferson County, the state’s largest, has eloped with fiscal disarray. Anniston Star

Think Tanks Push ALEC to Go After Unions

Desperation sometimes masks itself in acceptance. Such was the case for Takelia Carter of Marion, Ark. For Carter, the mother of six school-age children in a low paying job, desperation was normative existence. This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
