A Sensible Elected Official
The new mayor of Madison, Alabama, has a surprisingly sensible attitude about security.
From the Huntsville Times:
City Hall security. Kirkindall, Atallo and Lacy agree the city may have gone a little overboard in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks by eliminating 20 to 25 prime parking spaces near the building. Starting today, people will be allowed to park there again.
Atallo says the City Hall visitors log—another recent addition—also annoys people and doesn’t do anything to make Madison safer. To prove it, he’s been signing the names of famous terrorists – “O.B. Laden,” “Carlos T. Jackal” – in the book.
No one’s caught it.
As of today, the log is out.
I have no idea if he’s a Republican or a Democrat, but I wish there were more people like him in government.
