Rumors are part of the stock-in-trade of Montgomery politicos, and this past Friday it churned out buzz that Supreme Court Associate Justice Glenn Murdock was going to make a big announcement by day’s end.
In an attempt to run the gossip to ground, The Alabama Political Reporter called Murdock in the early afternoon. After leaving a voicemail, the clock ran out at 5 p.m. with no announcement – after 5 p.m. on a Friday, the only news from the political world are stories they want people to ignore.
