And don't make this a 'Southern" or "Florida" problem.... This is a Republican problem, it's nationwide and infects the entire country from Alabama to Alaska.

I wonder if they similarly 'vetted' color schemes for  St. Patrick's Day. Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Halloween, Christmas. etc.

Surely they have those 'approval' documents on file in the public record.

I love you dude, but Alabama sucks balls.

I used to live in apartament that was half a block from the bridge and I used to walk across it from work.

I am a brown skinned southerner who defends the south who hates the GOP.

But Jacksonville has it's own special hate for gays and minorities.

You really need to stop defending Alabama.

our scheduled color scheme for the Acosta Bridge is out of compliance with our existing permit.

So rainbows, an existing natural phenomenon of light, is somehow out of compliance?  shiat just turn the lights off entirely, then. Can't have an unnatural, human-made phenomenon of light breaking compliance.  And. Ablackednoit bridge is even more poetic for pride month in a bigot-run state.

We need to hang out man.

I went to Marion Military Academy in the mid 1980s which is on the ass end of Selma. Where Judson College is.  When I went to Marion Judson was a finishing school.

It had about 200 young women training to be sister wives.  We would have cotillions with them where we were in Old South gear and they would be coking all kinda stuff in crockpots.

This was in 84, fairly modern times.

Great guy. We went there too. Very Straight...but a horn dog that did nudist cruises.

DeathSantis is an evil bigoted asshole who needs to be removed from office and never allowed near humans again.  And apparently FDOT did this to many places around the state.  The above examples and so many more were permitted but this particular event is against the permit?  DeathSantis can go fark himself right the fark off.

Hang on, is this a permanent lighting feature built into this bridge?

About
The St. Elmo W. Acosta Bridge spans the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida on a fixed span.
LED lights that can be programmed in any color (with the option for multiple color combinations) were recently installed on the Acosta Bridge, replacing neon tubes installed 20-plus years ago. The new LED lights can be changed for special events, like holidays and Jaguar games!
The new LED system cost $2.6 million and was installed by Miller Electric.
https://downtownjacksonville.org/poi/​a​costa-bridge/

They spent $2.6 million on a bridge specifically so it could be lit up all the colors of the rainbow and got pissy when it showed support for LGBTQ??

Wallace won his final term in office on the strength of the Black vote.in 1982 by receiving more than 90% of the overall Black vote. Not defending him at all, but he started out as a moderate Dem and switched to the racist dog whistles when he got his ass whipped in an election by someone who blew the hell out of those whistles.

I was present when this happened in 1995, and he was pretty much a shell of a man at that point.
30 years later, Wallace apologizes to marchers - Baltimore Sun

It took me years to understand why my community voted for him after all he did. I think part of it was that Emory Folmar was a real dick. I lived in Montgomery for a while when he was mayor, and I was happy to see him leave office for good.

Alabama has its pockets of racist assholes, but there are some decent folks there too. We deserve a lot of the scorn heaped on us, but I've also had the fortune of meeting some damn good White folks from Alabama too. The same goes for Louisiana. I try to not lump the entire state in one pile because of the actions of a few assholes, but that's just me.

City: The permits are on display...

City:That's the display department.

City: The lights had probably gone out.
Pride Committee: So had the stairs.

I think the phrase "from Alabama to Alaska" was meant more as an alliterative figure of speech, with the secondary meaning of "one geographic extreme to another" to represent the nation as a total entity.

Paradoxically. Wallace did more GOOD for civil rights than evil. Maybe not intentionally. But eventually.


When he first ran for Governor he ran on issues like education, roads, general welfare, with the backing of the NAACP and against the KKK. His opponent in the primary, Patterson, ran with the backing of the Klan on pretty much nothing but segregation. Looking at the returns come in Wallace said "They out-n***ered me. They'll never do that again." And they never did.

Even so, his bread-and-butter policies were more supportive of Black people than you would imagine. For instance, money per capita for Black schools was on a par with White schools.

He didn't start off racist and probably wasn't as racist as his publicity made him out to be; he understood what it took to get elected.

And it's also not the damnation you think it is. Remember, it was well into the twentieth century and in parts of the South into the post-WWII era before secondary education was close to universal in the South. There was strong resistance to education above 6th or 8th grade and towards higher education outside of Bible Colleges and the State A&M schools. Wallace was not great by modern standards, but judged by the standards of his time and place? Not too bad.
