Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Elvis was Mississippi-made

Posted 9/5/2015 in National Columns

Made in China. Made in Mexico. The souvenirs our Virginia visitors bought at the Elvis birthplace museum in Tupelo, Mississippi, all were made far away in other countries, and I'm wondering why. Elvis wasn't made in China. He was made right here in Mississippi.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: 'Religious liberty' looks a lot like intolerance from here

Posted 9/5/2015 in National Columns

"To me," she said in a statement, "this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and God's word. It is a matter of religious liberty." It's telling that Kim Davis chose those words to defend herself last week.

Susan Estrich: The summer of 2015

Posted 9/5/2015 in National Columns

In politics, this has been the summer of discontent, of revolt against Washington and established politics and, most of all, experienced politicians. How else to explain what is happening in both parties? Among Democrats, Independent Bernie Sanders is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money in polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. And among Republicans, none of the top three candidates according to the latest polls -- Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina -- have ever held elected office.

It seems like if you were going to be a friend to anyone, you'd be a friend of the library.

The only other place something like that could happen would be maybe Disney World, or the downtown post office.

Patrick Buchanan: Do cops' lives matter to Obama?

Posted 9/4/2015 in National Columns

Barack Obama, as chief law enforcement officer of the United States, is going to have to stop acting like a conscientious objector in this war on cops.

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Even one 'line of duty' death shocks conscience

Posted 9/3/2015 in Local Columns

Average age: 40. Average time in law enforcement: 12 years, 10 months. Those stats describe the 82 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty so far this year.

 

 

Wyatt Emmerich: Lessons learned from the Ashley Madison debacle

Posted 9/3/2015 in Local Columns

I was sitting on my back porch Saturday morning catching up on my Facebook feed when I thought, "Who is this Ashley woman from Madison and why is everybody so concerned about her?"

 

 

Our View: Convenience store ordinance fails to get at the root of the problem

We cannot decide what we dislike more: The new ordinance or the way it was carried out.
