Governor Riley Cancels Ariz. Trip Due To Ice Storm

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley has canceled his trip to
Glendale, Ariz., to see Auburn play in the national championship
football game.

Press secretary Todd Stacy said the governor didn't want to leave Alabama while it is in a state of emergency.

Riley declared the state of emergency Sunday due to the snow and ice storm.

Riley and state Emergency Management Director Brock Long flew to Huntsville at midday Monday to inspect conditions in north Alabama.

They are headed to Birmingham Monday afternoon to see conditions in Alabama's most populous city. Then Riley plans to return to
Montgomery to watch the Auburn-Oregon game on TV.

    He doesn't have long left in office and isn't trying to impress anyone. He is doing the right thing.

    If our sorry excuse for a leader thinks that the people of Alabama cannot see through this latest effort to make him look like a good guy, he is more stupid than we already knew.
