Leonard Pitts: Where is the Republican outrage?

Charlie Box is wrong, not just once, but twice.

 

 

Bernard Goldberg: Trump, Comey and the wound that just won't heal

Posted 5/16/2017 in National Columns

For a while now Democrats have had about as much confidence in FBI chief James Comey as they have in Donald Trump, which is next to none -- and I'm being generous.

 

Possumhaw: The pleasure of a plover

Posted 5/15/2017 in Local Columns

Leaving town by way of Waverly Ferry Road, near Plymouth Road, down near Water's Truck & Tractor, I curved left toward the Highway 82 West on-ramp. It's my preferred way of returning to the Prairie, avoiding traffic and stop lights; not to mention it's much more interesting.

 

Voice of the people: Lee Roy Lollar

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Access to information hasn't made us less angry

Posted 5/15/2017 in National Columns

Don't trust the media? Most people (according to media reports) don't. And that's fine because we all live in a new day. Anyone with internet access can go on endless fact-finding missions all by themselves. News is bountiful.

Other Editors: Lawmakers' ideas on fuel tax for road maintenance are comical

Posted 5/12/2017 in National Columns

Republicans in the Mississippi Legislature are so determined to avoid raising taxes for highway maintenance that they're willing to give up some of their cherished authority.

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Heydey of the nursery rhyme past, but it could return

Posted 5/12/2017 in National Columns

Generations grew up with the "sticks and stones" rhyme. You know, the one that ends, "but words can never hurt me."

 

 

Our View: More opportunities to connect with our lawmakers are needed

Posted 5/11/2017 in Dispatch Editorials
