From the Editor

Charles Whisenant is editor of The Arab Tribune. Have a story idea? E-mail him:; or, 256-586-3188.

A reader who didn’t leave his her name brought me a clipping from a 1992 Tribune. It was a column by the late Dot Slick, who, for years was a columnist for the paper.

The column was Eslick’s take on a story told to her years ago by a man in South Alabama.

It’s a pretty good yarn about a man who ran for sheriff. But, really it could be about many of today’s politicians. I won’t say which ones, because that’s for you to decide.

Maybe, reading Dot’s column will help everyone lighten up a bit in this politically charged year. Maybe.
