John Archibald: Plugged

Posted by .

John Archibald: The Future of UAB Football
Our weekly segment features The Birmingham News columnist John Archibald, discussing the city politic (and county and state politic too). Instead of being unplugged as he is in the newspaper, we offer him a bullhorn. Sort of.

Each Thursday, we focus on a theme. And how Archibald thinks it fits into a regional scheme. That’s scheme as in realm, not scheme as in shady plan. But he’ll discuss those too. It seems there’s been no shortage of shady schemes in our realm.
