Where the skies are so blue
Maybe it's Lynyrd Skynyrd's fault that people mistake Birmingham for the capital of Alabama, as seen in this recent News & Observer article in the Business section. That band, after all, did famously sing in "Sweet Home Alabama" that "in Birmingham they love the governor." But that doesn't mean the governor works there.

For the record, Montgomery is the capital of Alabama. Frankfort (not Lexington or Louisville) is the capital of Kentucky, and the capital of Missouri is Jefferson City (not St. Louis). And Lynyrd Skynyrd was from Florida, not Alabama.
