From the B’ham News today:

Hurricanes, eleventh-hour appeals from Death Row inmates, a landslide defeat at the polls, an insurgency inside his beloved GOP. You might expect Bob Riley to say that any or all of those have been the hardest part of the job of being Alabama’s 62nd governor. You’d be wrong.

The hardest days? Those come every time another Alabama solider dies, and these days that usually means in Iraq or Afghanistan. With every death comes a phone call from Riley to the soldier’s family.

I probably disagree with Bob Riley on about ninety percent of current social issues, but no one can do anything other than commend him for those phone calls. Even John Rogers has this to say about Riley:

he’s a great politician who also happens to be likable and somebody who you’d like to have a beer with if he drank beer.
