Editorial: Feedback

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Our "Census" editorial elicited this response from someone who emailed with the name Liberty Bell (e) : "At my house they will get only the required information – one adult male American, 2 adult female Americans.  In the past, the census was used to determine the number of congressmen each state could send to Washington, but today it only determines allocation of resources.  The additional information has more political usefulness than government usefulness." 

So far, 68% of Alabamians have returned their census forms, up from 66% two years ago, but below the national average of just under 72%. 

Our editorial "Cleaning Up" solicited this response from Bill: "Let's return "Alabama the Beautiful" to living up to its name. 

And legislators responded to our legislative scorecard editorial by passing legislation shoring up the state's prepaid college tuition plan, keeping the state's promise to pay tuition for 44,000 students.  And they will give voters a chance to decide whether or not to spend one billion dollars over the next 10 years from the state's oil and gas trust fund to build and repair roads and bridges in the state. 

We appreciate all of your feedback.

    Fifty-nine law enforcement officers have lost their lives this year alone in the line of duty.  We as a community need to let them know they are not in this alone.
