Picture imperfect

Every now and then, I'll throw up an old historic, or at least funny, picture up from the Ledger-Enquirer photo archives.

Here's the first selection...
Now, obviously this bears a little more explanation. This 1978 photo features a fellow names e John Thomas Allen, who was both a Phenix City police detective and a Baptist minister. So the photographer's told to go get a picture of him holding both instruments of his two professions.

Classic, eh?

"If a man was made to suffer,
Then I'm a mighty man, I know
And I cannot shake the anger
That keeps me on this road"
Jason & the Scorchers, "Bible and a Gun"
