Any turnstile with Bama in the name should be used to account for bathroom visitor numbers.

"Supported" you? Weren't they just reimbursing you for services rendered?

I like my employer, and am grateful for employment, but their motives for hiring me weren't altruistic.

In 1997 when B'ham City had one computer per academic department in its high schools, the GA high school I went to work for had one new computer in each classroom, several in each teacher lounge and a dozen or so in the library, and they told me that Baldwin County (Milledgeville) had the most primitive (technologically speaking) set ups in the state.

I don't personally know all the other districts (GA has 159 county systems plus many city systems), but I did see that teachers left for other GA districts at a high rate (20+% per year) and often for better pay and working conditions.

Guess we know how you're going to spend your winnings.

During my 2 years working in GA, I played the lottery from time to time but never had more than 2 numbers right. If I should play & win today, I would consider it fair to give some to the B'ham City school district since they supported me and mine for 33 years (1964-1997). It would also be fun to become one of the higher levels of Blazer athletic program support groups too, like my brother. Maybe I could give enough to get a "BAMANBLAZERFAN MEMORIAL TURNSTILE" one day at the new OCS.
That's about right.
You rarely have more than two things right per post here too.

Well, you're not BnBF, are you?

Saturday's Powerball has already been pushed to $550 million due to the ticket sales surge. A Powerball official being interviewed on the local 9 p.m. news here in Des Moines says it could top $650 million if ticket sales increase tomorrow and Saturday.

DAMN!

And Alabama continues to get ZERO tax income from all that "Alabama money" flowing into GA, FL, TN coffers. At least the two state BCS FB programs get to sign the good players from those state's high schools (and others getting lottery funds for their schools) so they can vie for BCS NCs and Heisman Trophies while our state's own public schools languish in 4 years of reduced funding (#1 in America for cutting per pupil funding).

What are you trying to say? Georgia shouldn't be recruited?

RE: The lottery
If Alabama had a world-class public education system, fully funded and well staffed, what would that do to the bammer supply? The marketing of bammer foooobaw is built on an endless pool of drooling ignorance. Who's going to patronize Greenetrack then? Who's going to vote for Bear's dermatologist? What will happen to sales of cough medicine?

Alabama's economic and political systems depend on a bottomless well of stupidity. Mess with that, and you are preaching revolution.
