Alabama update

An interesting side note to the story I covered briefly last week about Alabama's refusal to remove school segregation from the Constitution. It appears that Roy Moore, the judge now famous for defying a federal order to remove the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, was urging voters to vote against the Constitutional amendment because part of it would have said that every child has a right to a public education. If that got into the Constititution, Moore reasoned, it would open the way for lawsuits.

I detest Moore and all he stands for, but after reading about court cases in many other states (see below), you can't help but wonder if he isn't correct.
