When my son had a flat tire and called me for help, he missed hanging out with friends and I missed my meeting. But we didn’t miss anything. He’s a great kid with a busy life and we don’t spend enough time together.
Some reporters have big personalities and you notice them as soon as they arrive on the scene. When Larry Gierer arrives on the scene, he acts like just other guy on the street trying to figure out what’s going on. He watches and listens.
Miller and lawmakers had planned to make HOPE a partial scholarship, but they responded to the windfall by setting it up to cover full tuition and books and mandatory fees. They really did give the money back to the people.

But an interesting thing happened. Nearly 23,000 people — or 1.7 percent of Alabama voters — wrote in somebody else’s name, which means they voted against Roy Moore.
