Bama beer swillers & Baptists make the LA Times

Speaking of Southern Baptists ... we've got Joe Bob Mizzell to the left. He's the director of the Office of Christian Ethics & Chaplaincy Ministries for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions. Joe Bob (gotta love that name!) was one of several quoted by Stephanie Simon in her reporting in the Sunday's LA Times titled Beer battle brewing in Alabama. Not to worry DuWayne Bridges got some ink as well. The Rev. Dan Ireland and his Alabama Citizens Action Program were duly noted. I've yet to learn if the Alabama Senate will Free the Hops but I'm hopeful. Ms. Simon's writing was solid and amazingly enough Alabama came across rather well but for the Bible thumpers. John Gunn
