Should communities ban certain breeds of dogs, such as pit bulls? Why or why not?

Some already have:
Some communities ban pit bulls, but that's a misguided policy

No, they should not be a ban. But let's not get it twisted... dogs are not people no matter how many sweaters you put on them and sleep with them and only God knows what other things people do with them but they are not human. Humans are not dogs although it is getting hard to distinguish sometimes but it is a separate species. There is no comparison between banning a group( race) of humans and a breed of dog.

For the people of Monroeville, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "To Kill a Mockingbird" Nelle Harper Lee is a friend and a source of pride.

Read how one Monroeville native was shaped by TKAM's Maycomb:
When this project began to take shape and "To Kill a Mockingbird" was the clear winner to read, I was as proud as I was excited. Simply put, "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Harper Lee shaped Monroeville, and Monroeville -- a real-life Maycomb -- shaped me.

Troy University professor Daniel Smith argues that many occupational licensing requirements have little or no benefit to the public and make it harder for people to enter those fields.

Do you know which occupations require licenses? Take our quiz:
Alabama, like every other state, requires workers in certain professions to pay fees, obtain training and pass tests in order to ply their trades. But a study this week detailed that occupational licensing applies to a quarter of Alabama's workforce.

You may be surprised to find out how many actors you didn't realize were born in Alabama.

If we left anyone out, let us know in the comments!
OK, so you probably knew about a few of these talented actors but you may be surprised to find out how many performers you recognize from films and TV you didn't realize were born in Alabama.

Auburn fans, what do you think of the commercial?
It's a camera panning Toomer's Corner after what appears to be the final roll, with "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'", the song from the musical Oklahoma!, playing over the shot of Auburn's traditional game-winning celebration.

Do you know where Spectre, Alabama, is?

Take a video tour of its ruins, 10 years after a certain movie was made there: http://ow.ly/w7rd8

In journalism, we sometimes prepare background information for breaking stories – when the verdict hasn't come back yet, or when the votes are still being counted. When the story breaks, fill in the blanks and click "publish."

Here's what reporter Kyle Whitmire is stuffing away in his file drawer about Alabama's prison problem for one day in the not-too-distant future:

Why is Alabama's SEC Network commercial 1 second shorter than the rest of the SEC?

All jokes aside, here's the real reason: http://ow.ly/w3n7i

Does the commercial give you chills, Tide fans?
The commercial was shot over two days in February in Tuscaloosa.

If it's time for your license renewal, you might want to get it done before the shutdown. All services will resume at 8 a.m. on April 30.

Will the shutdown affect you?
The Alabama Department of Public Safety today announced a shutdown of its driver's license database that will begin at 5 p.m. Friday and continue until 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 30.
