The eyes of the nation are on Alabama… Here’s hoping they do the right thing.

A few days ago, when someone mentioned to me that Roy Moore had been successfully avoiding the press since news first broke about the child molestation allegations that had been leveled against him, I suggested that, if news agencies were really serious about getting his attention, they’d send younger reporters.
