Posted 5/25/2013 in National Columns

The election of Chokwe Lumumba as the Democratic nominee for Jackson mayor has got everybody talking about race. That's not a good thing. If I'm not mistaken, white Republican northeast Jackson voted overwhelmingly for the blacker of the two candidates. So exactly how can this be about race?

Often the photos are faded and bent, and though fewer and fewer remain who remember the names, their sacrifice is still ours to honor.

Birney Imes: Random notes

Posted 5/18/2013 in Local Columns

Remember when Coke bottles had the name of the town where it had been bottled stamped on the bottom?

When I told him it was an old bottle, he asked if it had been around when Elvis was alive.
