    *Gene, I support you thoughts, after all you are the Michael Jordan of successful events in promotions here in Birmingham and that is saying a lot.  Help move the thinking of this Birmingham away from the past history of our City.

  5. What are we going to do about improving race relations in our city?There is not enough attempts by the leaders of our city to promote events or programs to address issues that continue to separate the people of such a diverse,unlimited potential,metro area.Why has Nashville,Jacksonville,and Charlotte,figured it out,and we struggle to even have a viable transit system,among other things.It all goes back to ,all people, working together to move us toward greatness.
