Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Jim Crow days are here again

Posted 4/6/2016 in National Columns

Jim Crow days are here again, in Mississippi, this time segregating gays and lesbians from fine, God-and-diversity-fearing citizens. But this latest mossback move to keep business at bay and our poor image intact might not stand.

 

 

Ray Mosby: The image in the mirror

Posted 4/6/2016 in National Columns

"Mississippi Burning," meet "Mississippi Shunning." One we can watch via Netflix or on cable channels; the other we can watch play out before our very eyes. Neither is pretty.

 

 

Our View: Plymouth Bluff: The

Posted 4/5/2016 in Dispatch Editorials

Each spring, Columbus celebrates its Spring Pilgrimage, an opportunity to reflect on the city's past, primarily through tours of the city's oldest homes and the history they represent.

 

 

Other Editors: Mississippi's sugar daddy is Uncle Sam

Posted 4/5/2016 in National Columns

It was the sort of email the Sun Herald has grown accustomed to receiving during Thad Cochran's decades in the Senate. The senator on Friday was announcing another multimillion-dollar package of federal spending for the state.

 

 

Patrick J. Buchanan: What Trump has wrought

Posted 4/5/2016 in National Columns

As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State bashing for Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination.

 

Possumhaw: Sunday afternoon at the spillway

Posted 4/4/2016 in Local Columns

Looking across the Tenn-Tom Waterway from the West Bank, we saw young men playing basketball. Farther down a small boy twirled a smaller girl on a swing. Sam and I reminisced about when we'd twirl ourselves dizzy and tumble to the ground while everyone fell out laughing.

 

Charlie Mitchell: Who could think filtered funds might be a bribe?

Let's try screenwriting:

 

 

Leonard Pitts: 'Are you liberal or are you conservative?'

Posted 4/4/2016 in National Columns

About 20 years ago, when the syndicate that represents this column was preparing to pitch it to newspaper editors, I was called in for a meeting with the sales staff and somebody asked me this question: "Are you liberal or are you conservative?"

 

Slimantics: Like it or not, our state is becoming more diverse

Posted 4/2/2016 in Local Columns

I don't remember much about the day I became a United States citizen. Most likely, I was preoccupied with other things, like the concept of light, for example. My parents made a big deal of it, though. There was a little announcement published in the newspaper a few days later.

 

Partial to Home: An evening in Wonderland

Posted 4/2/2016 in Local Columns

Late Friday afternoon, an old friend from New Mexico called, and I stayed too long on the phone. I'd scheduled an interview at 4:30 with a tomato grower of some repute, who lives near Caledonia. I was running late.

 

 

Bill Crawford: House leadership playing loose with rights and rules

Posted 4/2/2016 in National Columns

When it comes to guns, the Mississippi Constitution is a fortress for sacred rights. But, when it comes to reading bills, the Mississippi Constitution is a ridiculous antique.

 

Patrick J. Buchanan: Lock out the establishment in Cleveland

Posted 4/2/2016 in National Columns

The Wisconsin primary could be an axle-breaking speed bump on Donald Trump's road to the nomination.

Jamie Stiehm: A political heart to heart: Hillary and Bernie

Posted 4/2/2016 in Local Columns

Slimantics: Time to celebrate Confederate Heritage Month

Posted 4/1/2016 in Local Columns

Today is April Fool's Day. Perhaps by coincidence, it is also the first day of "Confederate Heritage Month" in Mississippi.

 

Our View: A special Saturday

Posted 4/1/2016 in Dispatch Editorials

There are 40 remaining Saturdays in 2016, including tomorrow. Yet not all Saturdays are created equal.

 

Lynn Spruill: The new normal

Posted 4/1/2016 in Local Columns

In an effort to stay more informed, I have started listening to the audio version of the Economist magazine on my iPad while getting ready for work.
