wrote a splendid op-ed that highlighted, as he put it, the states that have "gone wild" by passing all sorts odd laws that hardly seem necessary in recent years.
Keller writes, "It feels as if every news cycle brings another seemingly random example of a state veering off the mainstream, especially on these issues of personal liberty. What's up with that?"
You'll be happy to know that Keller did not mention Alabama — though he could have and probably should have, too.
Remember, Alabama's current GOP-dominated Legislature has passed a xenophobic illegal-immigration law and, in this session, quickly passed the controversial Alabama Accountability Act that allows for students to transfer (with tax credits for their parents) from "failing" schools to other public or private schools.
Yes, The Times' Keller should have mentioned Alabama.
