Susan Estrich: One country

Posted 11/5/2012 in National Columns

I'm sitting here in the bright sunshine in Pompeii. At any minute, the Earth could shake, and my city would look no better, and possibly worse, than New York.

 

 

Voice of the people: David Owen

I am writing to correct some of the mis-perceptions of the BP settlement expressed in Slim Smith's article of Oct. 31.

 

 

George Will: Obama's campaign goes empty and strident

Posted 11/2/2012 in National Columns

Energetic in body but indolent in mind, Barack Obama in his frenetic campaigning for a second term is promising to replicate his first term, although simply apologizing would be appropriate.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: In GOP view, life is sacred ... except when it's not

Posted 11/2/2012 in National Columns

This year, the GOP adopted -- again -- a platform under which no woman could ever legally have an abortion.

 

 

Voice of the people: Berry Hinds

On Monday a public information and input meeting for the CAFB was held at the Trotter Convention Center and only two -- that's right, two -- citizens attended this presentation that was well prepared and presented.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Sorry, dealer's all out of race cards

Predictable as rain, the race card has surfaced just in time to stir up electoral passions, justify outcomes and explain away inconvenient truths.

 

 

Our view: All the right moves ...

Slimantics: BP settlement offers ethical dilemma

Posted 10/31/2012 in Local Columns

I was pretty confident Alwyn H. Luckey had picked the wrong audience for what he was proposing. Luckey, an attorney from Ocean Springs who is intimately involved in the legal proceedings that resulted from the BP oil spill, had a fascinating story to tell.

 

Susan Estrich: The October surprise

Posted 10/31/2012 in National Columns

Sandy. Don't get me wrong. Like most Americans, politics was the last thing on my mind as I waited to hear from my daughter, who lost power and cell service Monday night, along with millions of other Americans, and was trying to figure out what to do and where to go with a roommate and two kittens.

 

 

Voice of the people: Anne Gillis Burkart

Charlie Mitchell: Days numbered for candidates, Electoral College, too

Posted 10/30/2012 in National Columns

Let's raise a toast to the end of campaign season and all those pesky ads. What do you mean, "What ads?" Oh, that's right. We live in Mississippi, one of the 40 states where the contest for the presidency is, well, no contest at all.

 

 

Froma Harrop: The Romney myth about helping Detroit

Posted 10/30/2012 in National Columns

Of Mitt Romney's many costume changes, the new Superman outfit portraying him as the would-be savior of the American auto industry wins for most imaginative.

Posted 10/29/2012 in Local Columns

Sam started his list of "honey-dos" and was soon dangling on the roof of the greenhouse. "Stay right there," I hollered; I ran to the house, leaving him hanging.

Ask Rufus: Not your typical morning joe

Posted 10/28/2012 in Local Columns
