Wheel in the ditch....

Alabama -- the State, not the Band -- is using the term "Sweet Home Alabama" in their latest tourism promotion.

Neil would be proud. He needs the pub (not).

I have only driven through a couple of times, but on first impression I am not so sure that Mr. Young, as we alt.country guys refer to him, was wrong, as Skynyrd supposes.

I'll leave that statement by itself, and wait for Chuck's rebuttal -- BUT, in my defense, when confronted by two opposing songs, I'll always go with the one which has the best lyrics, and there is no debate on that....

All I can say is that a band from Florida (Skynyrd) didn't know enough about Alabama to write anything about it.

The people there are supremely friendly. You can drive 90 miles an hour down I-65 and the only HP you'll see are stopped helping disabled vehicles. Something fundamentally good about that...
