Riley Backs Aruba Boycott
Alabamians have seen one family's tragedy turn into a national tabloid sensation. Now Governor Riley and many in the legislator are ratcheting up the rhetoric surrounding the controversial case.
I can certainly understand why many Alabamians are outraged at what seems to be (at best) an incompetent investigation into the matter, but I am still surprised to see public officials taking such a vocal position. The "Boycott Aruba" movement has largely been spear-headed by the perpetually outraged radio hosts "Russ and Dee".
It is a little disconcerting to see the governor following the lead of local loudmouths, even if he's doing the right thing.
