    To be honest with you, I have no clue where this is ... but after watching the original Jazz Singer last night, the song, "Alabammy Bound," is on my mind.

    Shouldn't that be "thrice-weekly?" Or does it really only come out once every three weeks?

    You want to come to Alabama? Is there a history of mental illness in your family?

    If you don't have kids, aren't directly affected by the quality of the public education, and can tolerate Crimson Tide fans, the natural beauty and low taxes could be attractive to you.

    "I'm Alabammy Bound ..." ... Yes, Jolson Sings Again!!! Well, not for real since Jolie died in 1950. He rerecorded a lot of these songs in the late 1940s on the backside of "The Jolson Story," which was a hit movie in 1946, and the sequel, "Jolson Sings Again." I know ... too much information and off topic. Like Newman said in a "Seinfeld" episode trying to sell old records, "But look, it's Al Jolson. Al Jolson!"

    OK ... back to the job listing.
