I found this by reading the Sunday column by John Archibald of the Birmingham News/ I think Archibald is the best columnist in the state especially with his smarty pants comments when he properly spanks politicians for their corruption or stupidity. Borrowing Archibald's words that best describe the report, it was revealed that by "raising Alabama's high school graduation rate by just 10 points - from 80 to 90 percent - it would produce an economic impact to the state's economy similar to landing an industrial mega-project. Modeling for the study was provided by AUM Economics Professor Keivan Deravi.
Archibald went on to explain the impact of a higher graduation rate.

John Archibald, a metro columnist at The Birmingham News, wrote a column questioning why there were protests in New Orleans, but none in Birmingham, and chalked it up to New Orleans’s “identity and pride†and Birmingham’s “division and hostility.†Whitmire said that while New Orleanians were disappointed in the loss of a daily newspaper, Birminghamians were simply disappointed in The Birmingham News as the community’s newspaper.

John Archibald, the Birmingham News' metro columnist, has disappeared.
We asked Archibald and editor Tom Scarritt for comment; we received no reply.
Instead, MOBster Kyle Whitmire was kind enough to share a copy of Archibald's most recent column, one that apparently will never run in the News.
And the last time anyone saw Archibald in public? He was on a panel last Tuesday night at the Birmingham News for a Society of Professional Journalists event. The topic of discussion?
Journalism and ethics.
