Slimantics: Tupelo owes an enduring debt to Jack Reed Sr.

Posted 1/30/2016 in Local Columns

In Tupelo, Elvis is king. In fact, he is more prominent in death than he ever was in life. Up until his death in 1977, the only homage paid to the entertainer in the town of his birth was a small park in East Tupelo, which was home to a swimming pool, youth center and the small two-room shotgun house where he was born in 1935. There were no celebrations or festivals in the city to celebrate him.

Posted 1/30/2016 in National Columns

"A lie can get halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes." That nugget of wisdom dates from the 1800s, i.e., decades before anyone ever heard of the Internet -- much less Fox "News."

 

Lynn Spruill: My STARKVEGAS

Posted 1/29/2016 in Local Columns

During a recent televised MSU men's basketball game something crystallized for me. The camera was focused on the band, which was whipping the crowd into a frenzy -- not too difficult seeing as we were leading Ole Miss.

Kathleen Parker: Hillary Clinton's problem with honesty
