Voice of the people: Reid Bell

 

Slimantics: Fear and hatred are the first steps to injustice

Posted 12/16/2015 in Local Columns

Fear and hatred, on a large scale, requires some hard work.

 

Voice of the people: Bob Altman

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Donald Trump to the rescue

Posted 12/16/2015 in National Columns

Gee, wonder what Hillary Clinton has been up to?

 

 

Humane Society needs a dose of Christmas charity

Posted 12/15/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

One of the best aspects of the Christmas season is the spirit of generosity it inspires.

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Being America is hard, and not getting any easier

Posted 12/15/2015 in Local Columns

Hillary Clinton doesn't have to wait for Christmas to get her gift. Donald Trump has been her Santa. He's outrageous, so he commands all the ink and air time -- so all her skeletons sit safely in the cupboard.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Climate change issue needs a Churchill

Posted 12/15/2015 in National Columns

"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." Those were Winston Churchill's words of battle-weary comfort when World War II started decisively shifting in the Allies' favor.

 

Shannon Bardwell: Gathering of the greens

Posted 12/14/2015 in Local Columns

Michele, a single parent of two, dragged her artificial tree down from the attic. One of the daughters has a new puppy. Of the puppy, Michele said, "I hate that dog."

Lynn Spruill: 'Sunday Morning'

Posted 12/14/2015 in Local Columns

There is something special about the TV news magazine "CBS Sunday Morning." I have watched it since Charles Kuralt was the anchor. In fact, I still expect to hear his voice when the baroque styled trumpet theme of Abblasen plays the opening notes. Nothing against the current Charles, but he just isn't Kuralt.

 

Susan Estrich: Guns for terrorists?

Posted 12/14/2015 in National Columns

Are you for or against guns for terrorists?

 

Ask Rufus: Brutality and barbecue 475 years ago

Posted 12/14/2015 in Local Columns

Four hundred and seventy-five years ago a ragged army of almost 500 Spanish adventurers, soldiers, horses, war dogs, pigs and some priest, women and free Blacks entered what is now Mississippi near the present site of Columbus. About Dec. 16, 1540, the expedition of Hernando de Soto crossed the Tombigbee River.

Partial to Home: Buck's bees

Posted 12/12/2015 in Local Columns

On a recent afternoon, the beekeeper Buck Hildreth walked out the back door of his home and down his driveway to a white cabinet near the road that runs in front of his house.

 

Voice of the people: Gill Harris

 

 

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Written under the gun

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

One of my best friends in the world is going "under the knife" today, which is what my mother would have said if someone she knew was about to have an operation. I never once heard her say "procedure," which sounds more like a tax audit or a recipe for making cheese.

 

Robert Koehler: Beyond Trump: The politics of courage

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

If Donald Trump can thrive politically by throwing meat to the American id, what else is possible? How about the opposite? Trump's most recent attempt to reclaim poll supremacy -- his call for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what's going on" -- is not simply reckless and dangerous, but also starkly clarifying.

 

Kathleen Parker: Women in combat will put men at greater risk

Posted 12/12/2015 in National Columns

It is axiomatic that the White House, and not just this one, makes controversial announcements when people are otherwise distracted. Usually, this means late Friday afternoons when there isn't much time for the media to make trouble.
