If you took in any of the first annual Possum Town Tales Storytelling Festival, you don't need anyone to tell you how good it was.

 

George Will: Answerable to no one

Posted 11/17/2012 in National Columns

There can be unseemly exposure of the mind as well as of the body, as the progressive mind is exposed in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a creature of the labyrinthine Dodd-Frank legislation. Judicial dismantling of the CFPB would affirm the rule of law and Congress's constitutional role.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: The sad state of zealots with microphones

Posted 11/17/2012 in National Columns

America, you are an idiot. You are a moocher, a zombie, soulless, mouth-breathing, ignorant, greedy, self-indulgent, envious, shallow and lazy.

 

 

Rheta Johnson: Thankful for things that don't change

Posted 11/17/2012 in National Columns

I love the catalog covers with yellow dogs marching through the woods with their Marlboro Man owners, a Christmas tree in tow.

 

Ask Rufus: Baskets hold story of early Choctaws

Posted 11/17/2012 in Local Columns

Most people think the Choctaws were, as a people, gone from Lowndes County after the Indian treaties of the 1820s and 1830s. That is not the case, and the long survival of Choctaw baskets in the area tells the story.

Our view: Enthusiastic public greets new museum

Posted 11/16/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

The H.L. Hunt Museum and Cultural Center held a grand-opening ceremony Thursday at the old high school, which served as Columbus' black high school until integration.

 

Susan Estrich: An officer and a gentleman

Posted 11/16/2012 in National Columns

Something very wrong has just gone down. It's played out so much like a soap opera, for those following the twists and turns of who sent whom a shirtless photo, but at its core, it is very simple.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Who are we to proclaim God's will?

Posted 11/15/2012 in National Columns

You remember Malala Yousafzai, of course. She is the Pakistani girl from the conservative Swat Valley region of that country who came to international attention as a blogger and activist for the right of girls and women to be educated.

 

 

Froma Harrop: They led us to the cliff but can't make us jump

Posted 11/15/2012 in National Columns

The tea party now has its own news site. Based at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, the Tea Party News Network describes itself as "the only trusted news source."

 

Slimantics: Secession: Haven't we've tried that already?

Posted 11/14/2012 in Local Columns

As of Tuesday afternoon, residents in 47 states had signed petitions to secede from the United States. Of that group, more than 30 states have collected enough signatures to prompt official consideration.

 

Kathleen Parker: We must wait to pass judgment

Posted 11/14/2012 in National Columns

It is tempting, oh so tempting, to unleash the snark as the script unfolds: Real Housewives of Tampa. Or is it Real Generals of Kabul?

 

 

Our view: For your eyes only? Think again ...

Posted 11/14/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

A wise mother once said, "Be careful what you do. Someone is always watching you." It's easy to forget this rule applies to our online activities.

 

 

Marty Wiseman: Sifting through the aftermath

Posted 11/13/2012 in Local Columns

So what to make of the 2012 Presidential election? We could begin with a look at the Southern Strategy, demographics and misplaced calculations by Republican strategists.

 

 

Our view: Boys and Girls Club can be catalyst for profound change

Posted 11/13/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

It is a sad truth that often the people who most need a thing are those who can least afford to pay for it.

 

Adele Elliott: Endings and beginnings -- circular politics

Posted 11/13/2012 in Local Columns

The presidential election of 2012 is over. Hallelujah! I am sure most of us are more than ready to close the door on the ugliness, mud slinging and tedious ads.

 

George Will: A reformed Republican party

Posted 11/12/2012 in National Columns

Conservatives should jauntily sing as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers did in a year when the country's chin was on the ground. Conservatives are hardly starting from scratch in their continuing courtship of the electorate, half of which embraced their message more warmly than it did this year's messenger.

 

Possumhaw: Tucking it all in

Posted 11/12/2012 in Local Columns

Nighttime temperatures dropped into the 30s and the first day of frost is precariously close.
