Selden Lambert: A blip a the polls

Tuesday afternoon I went to the polls at Union Academy to cast my vote. I expected to be in and out in about six minutes as usual as the crowd was light.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Advice for GOP: Chill

You'd think they'd never seen a scandal before.

 

 

Michael Gerson: The fresh air of Pope Francis

Posted 6/8/2013 in National Columns

WASHINGTON -- We tend to remember leaders in characteristic poses. For Pope Benedict XVI, the college professor, it was delivering a much-misunderstood lecture at the University of Regensburg, which made controversial reference to Islam. For Pope Francis, it is kneeling to wash the feet of a young Muslim woman in a prison on Holy Thursday. With due respect to Benedict's learning, Francis' symbolic act managed to more effectively communicate the essence of the Christian gospel.

Our view: More plowshares, fewer swords

Posted 6/7/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

When the increasingly infamous sequester officially began in March, the sky did not fall. Well, it didn't fall right away.

 

 

Our view: Elvis would be proud of his cousin's compassion

Posted 6/6/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

Brandon Presley has a ceiling he will never break through: He will never be Lee County's MPP (Most Popular Presley).

Slimantics: Notes on the municipal elections

Posted 6/5/2013 in Local Columns

Tuesday's municipal elections reaffirmed something Abraham Lincoln said during the Gettysburg Address about the nature of our system of government. Ours is a government of some of the people, by some of the people and for some of the people.

Carmen K. Sisson: Remembering Barbara Bobo

Posted 6/4/2013 in Local Columns

It is June 2002, and I am sitting in the middle of the West Alabama Gazette's office in Millport, Ala., writing an editorial for The Northport Gazette, the WAG's sister paper. The doors are flung open, and as dusk dims to dark, the cicadas increase their pitch.

 

Possumhaw: Snakes and dam holes

Posted 6/4/2013 in Local Columns

Wispy clouds littered the blue sky on a warm, clear day. The humidity was low, and the sun was edging toward the tree line.

Slimantics: Two candidates, one bad choice

Posted 6/3/2013 in Local Columns

Tuesday, Starkville voters will go to the polls to choose a mayor. Incumbent Parker Wiseman faces a stiff challenge from Republican challenger Dan Moreland. In recent weeks, Moreland's campaign -- thought to be badly damaged by a recent audit that showed sloppy accounting and budgeting practices in the Starkville Parks Commission -- has gained momentum.

Slimantics: Smith gets the nod for mayor

Posted 6/3/2013 in Local Columns

On Tuesday, voters in Columbus will go to the polls to select a mayor and the final seat on the city council. What sort of turn-out can be expected is unclear.

Susan Estrich: Eric Holder cannot investigate himself

Posted 6/1/2013 in National Columns

No one should pretend that dealing with leaks of highly sensitive and classified national security documents is easy. I remember hearing plenty of conservatives taking to the airwaves to accuse The New York Times of nothing less than "treason" for publishing materials provided by WikiLeaks.
