    Selma is not in east-central alabama. Central from north to south, yes. It's in the western half of the state, though.

    Selma is in the middle of nowhere.

    I'll vouch for the editor as good people who will work your a** off. I can't vouch for anything else on this one.

    Dennis Palmer gave my job away when I came back from a deployment with the Guard. 'Nuff said.

    Nah. They covered themselves by offering me a comparable job about 100 miles away. It was time to move on, anyway. I wound up in Tupelo ... a much, much better situation.

    Tupelo is in a much better portion of Middle of Nowhere. Prettier, too.
