Those of us living in the southern United States take great pride in our accomplihments. We lead the nation in illiteracy, obesity, poverty, infant mortality, and fundamentalist Christianity. I'll admit that life is not quite perfect here, but we're working on it. That is why I am so happy to hear that my neighbors in Alabama are considering the bold step of adding the phrase "God Bless America" to all license plates in the state.
This plan, proposed by a Democrat, will serve as a model for all states in the South. It sickens me that Kansas has taken away the status of most ridiculed state away from my home of Mississippi. Alabama is making an impressive move to steal this coveted title. At least the title will be restored to the South. Since Mississippi leads Alabama on most of the indicators I mentioned above, it is just a matter of time before we can grab the title for ourselves.
