Toyota, Mazda walked away from $1.5 billion incentive package from NC -
The announcement — made by Alabama's governor and leaders of both car companies in Huntsville, the site of the new plant — was anticlimactic: News of the deal was leaked late Tuesday and spread like wildfire, stunning local and state leaders, some of whom admitted they were caught by surprise.

Roy Moore’s Lawyer Accused of Uncomfortable Relationship With English Language | Lowering the Bar
Roy Moore isn’t “Chief Justice Roy Moore.” He was that, but he no longer is, because he was kicked out for violating Alabama’s Canons of Judicial Ethics, including Canon 2, “A Judge Shall Not Dump Upon the Rule of Law.” There is some disagreement about whether a person can go around using a title he or she no longer holds. I’m not really sure why that is, since HE OR SHE NO LONGER HOLDS IT and so it’s potentially deceptive. But even if you think a former judge or senator or whatever should be able to do that generally speaking, surely that should not apply to one who had the title removed for misconduct. I guess the sentence could be read to imply that Moore is Chief Justice of the “Foundation for Moral Law,” not of a court. But then it would just be false.

Inside a squat metal building on the outskirts of Fort Payne, Ala., huge spools of cheerfully colored thread hang like nursery mobiles above rows of blue knitting machines the size of office copiers.

It's loud in this part of the mill, and Gina Locklear has to shout to be heard. Her eyes light up as she talks about her newest set of machines, installed last January, that can knit a sock with a seamless toe. It's a  It's a capability the mill's older machines don't have. Those were originally built to manufacture white athletic socks, a business that has largely left the country.
