    In Selma it is against the law to put a lit firecracker under the Sheriff’s car even if it is Halloween.

    It was not in Montgomery, but about 50 years ago while horseback riding a lady spooked my horse when she opened her umbrella. Nearly caused a bad accident, so I understand how that law might have come about.
