Susan Estrich: The plane

Posted 3/26/2014 in National Columns

I admit it. I have been obsessed with the plane. Most of the stories I've read offered no new information, but I read them anyway.



Kathleen Parker: 'Noah,' the movie

Posted 3/26/2014 in National Columns

There's nothing quite so helpful as a fatwa and threats of a Christian boycott to create buzz in advance of new movie.


Frances Hairston: Life lessons learned in a greenhouse

Posted 3/25/2014 in Local Columns

Parents should take a page from Mary Tuggle's book on how to instill in children a work ethic. Two weeks ago, I, along with other members of the Noxubee Garden Club, sat mesmerized listening to Mary and Katherine Hewlett tell the story of Palmer Home.


Leonard Pitts: A pointed comment on guns

Posted 3/25/2014 in National Columns

Meaning, you should understand, not a gun you hold in your hand, but rather, the hand itself, thumb cocked and index finger extended to resemble a pistol.



Voice of the people: Bob Raymond



Charlie Mitchell: Corrections reforms not easy, but not optional either

Posted 3/24/2014 in Local Columns

Oops. Sheriffs read the bill. So did some prosecutors. Together, they took the wind out of the sails of corrections legislation as it reached Gov. Phil Bryant's desk.


Possumhaw: Bunny in the bathroom

Posted 3/24/2014 in Local Columns

The caller said, "I read in the paper that you wanted a rabbit."

Ask Rufus: The homeland

Posted 3/22/2014 in Local Columns

This past week has been a most interesting one. I had the pleasure of having four houseguests who are working on a historic sites study for the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations of Oklahoma.


Voice of the people: Abortion comment


Birney Imes: Spring arrives

Posted 3/22/2014 in Local Columns

Kenny Lang, who pedals his bicycle around Southside relentlessly and who could do voice-overs for Disney's "Song of the South," was watering his garden on Thursday, the first day of spring. Kenny is cultivating a sliver of earth near the intersection of South Fifth Street and 16th Avenue. He was using two plastic soft drink bottles to sprinkle his Georgia collards, kale and onions.


Froma Harrop: Yawning at anonymous posts

Posted 3/22/2014 in National Columns

Beats me how new apps like "Secret" and "Whisper" are going to make big money. Presumably, that is the objective of their Silicon Valley creators.



Kathleen Parker: Don't confuse the Pope's meeting with Obama as an endorsement

Posted 3/22/2014 in National Columns

This week's meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama holds great promise in a time of turmoil, though not necessarily in the ways some may hope.


Leonard Pitts: The wasted life of Fred Phelps

Posted 3/22/2014 in National Columns

And what shall we say now that the monster has died?

Lynn Spruill: Last minute agenda changes not in public's interest

Posted 3/21/2014 in Local Columns

What do we mean by Sunshine Week, anyway? Sunshine is refers to lighting up the inner workings of government. Who knew?


Kathleen Parker: Putin the petty clerk

Posted 3/21/2014 in National Columns

Slimantics: Gibbs case is about abortion, not murder

Posted 3/20/2014 in Local Columns

It has been 41 years since the landmark Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling that barred states from outlawing abortion.


Wyatt Emmerich: Privacy, jobs and tax breaks to businesses

Posted 3/20/2014 in Local Columns

The rise of the Internet is eroding our expectations of privacy. Like a lobster in a big stove pot of water, we are about to get boiled.



Our view: New Hope shooting underscores peril law enforcement officers face

Posted 3/19/2014 in Dispatch Editorials

The gunfire that interrupted the quiet of a modest New Hope neighborhood on Tuesday should serve as a reminder to us all on two points: First, this kind of incident can happen anywhere. Second, the potential sacrifices that our law enforcement officer face can happen anytime.
