Is it true that Birmingham is the most liberal city in the South?
Anyone care to comment? I may have an opportunity to move there, and I'd like to know. And, yes, I do realize there are tons of RWers everywhere.

Also, any great bar-b-que places in B-ham?

1. I never thought of Birmingham as particularly liberal
African-American politicians generally run the city, as Birmingham is majority black. They are fiscally liberal, but socially moderate to conservative, in my opinion. I would prefer the opposite. Fiscally moderate, and socially liberal, I mean.

As to bar-b-que, check out Full Moon, and if you can make it down to Tuscaloosa, visit the original Dreamland for the ribs. It's hard to find, but worth the search.

3. can you give me a link?
I would be interested to see that. I might learn something I didn't know.

By the way, nice to see someone here in the wee hours. Or for that matter, anytime at all. :)

After looking it over, I have to conclude that they called Birmingham liberal simply because it is home to a lot of black people. For them to say that Birmingham is more liberal than New York City is ridiculous. I wish it was true, but believe me, it simply is not.
