Quick! Someone asks you a simple question: "What's the median income in Alabama?" Would you, (a) Use Google to find the answer on the U.S. Bureau of the Census website or, (b) Set up a no-bid contract suggested by former Alabama Gov. Bob Riley's daughter and commission a $72,000 study with a Birmingham law firm that inquired about why they weren't getting any state business? If you selected (b), you may be a member of the state's GOP supermajority, because that's exactly what happened.
