Alderman Darrel Leftwich is proposing that the city establish new Sunday hours for White House Municipal Park so sporting events could only be held in the afternoon.
Leftwich solemnly intoned that God intended the seventh day to be one of rest and worship. He had been driving to services at Temple Baptist Church (ed. note: natch) and noticed the park was full of people at a soccer tournament.
But before we despair, Alderman Farris Bibb (ed. note: we're not making these names up) to the rescue:
Alderman Farris Bibb Jr. said the city should go slow before enacting a change. "With all due respect to Alderman Leftwich, the seventh day of the week is Saturday," Bibb said.
You took the words right out of my mouth, Farris.
