  1. CSX built a hub in McCalla, Alabama, right where cow pastures used to be. My aunt now has lights and sounds all night long, less then 350 yards from her back door. There was a commotion in the community when it was announced, but it was already a done deal: 'here's your gruel, now eat it'. According to her, there were/still are some mighty ticked-off people around there.

    1. 'here's your gruel, now eat it'.

      What a shame. Thanks.

  2. We'll wait and see what develops. I don't see where the State should get a free pass fo doing the same thing as the Feds. Property rights are property rights, and a land grab is still a land grab. If it doesn't die on the vine, we may have our own little set-to righr here in River City, with the chance to work on our organizing skills.
