Alamo up north

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2008 at 10:56 AM

The Village Voice is on the Tony Alamo beat this week with a report on the World Pastor's New York followers. The Catholic-trashing evangelist is currently based in Fouke, Ark. 

Hard times in New York town: Apparently the church is having trouble convincing people to take the bus to its facility in Jersey, so it's having meetings in a New York pizza parlor. Another angle is a Jersey-based, Alamo-related business that's being sued by Tempur-Pedic. The business is accused of attempting to sell donated mattresses bound for Hurricane Katrina refugees.

Things are still thriving for Alamo down here as far as I can tell. My car got plastered with literature at the airport just two weeks ago.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
