It began with a career day presentation by a student at Starkville High School, soon became an online petition to demand the teacher of that class be returned to the classroom and today is the subject of an investigation by the Starkvile-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District.

 

 

Froma Harrop: A tale of two terrors: Paris and New York

Posted 11/19/2015 in National Columns

Slimantics: 'Tis the season for fear and anger

Posted 11/18/2015 in Local Columns

Sometimes events happen that are so horrific, so shocking that we find it difficult to process. The Paris terrorist attacks, which left 129 dead, many more injured, and the rest of the world unnerved, is the most recent example.

 

Froma Harrop: The Paris attacks and what must change

Posted 11/18/2015 in National Columns

Many French people referred to the January attacks on the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and other sites as their 9/11. As awful as that time was, it was not a 9/11.

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: Is Putin our ally in Syria?

Posted 11/17/2015 in National Columns

Among the presidential candidates of the Republican Party and their foreign policy leaders on Capitol Hill the cry is almost universal: Barack Obama has no strategy for winning the war on ISIS.

Posted 11/14/2015 in Local Columns

Friday night I was asked to tell stories at a "lock-in" for the West Point Episcopal Church's youth group.

Posted 11/14/2015 in Local Columns

A friend and I were talking about law enforcement the other day. "How many times have you been stopped and searched by the police?" J. asked. We're about the same age.
