Tuscaloosa Diary-4

Stop the presses! The New York Times has confirmed the death of civil rights pioneer James Hood, more than three days after it was reported in the Tuscaloosa News, followed by stories by the AP and other major news media. I guess the Times was waiting on the confirmation from his daughter. Checking with the funeral home would have been too iffy, I guess.
