TITE or MITE?
Bring Your Camera — thousands of photo opportunities in the world’s greatest and most spectacular stalagmite forest. Just off US. 72, U.S. 431 and State Highway 79. Cathedral Caverns features the 7 greatest cavern wonders in the world.
I’m guessing she was hired by the Caverns as a photo opportunity.

“I WAS KILLING FASCISTS WHEN YOU PUNKS WERE IN DIAPERS.”
(Response by George Wallace to “hippies” who called him a fascist.)
George Corley Wallace, Jr., 45th Governor of Alabama, would have been 92 years old today. A staunch pro-segregationist, he renounced this attitude late in life.
His wife, Lurleen, is in the foreground, meaning that this postcard was likely published during her short term as the 46th Alabama Governor. (She died of cancer 16 months after taking office.) Alabama State law at that time prevented George from serving two consecutive terms as Governor. So how do you stay in power? This picture says it all.
