Voice of the people: Berry Hinds

 

Lynn Spruill: Rivals, yes, but fellow Mississippians, too

Posted 6/13/2014 in Local Columns

Some aspects of the rivalry between Ole Miss and State leaves me baffled. Don't misunderstand; as long as MSU is playing Ole Miss, there is no contest. MSU is the choice over Ole Miss hands down.

 

Susan Estrich: The power of 3,607

Posted 6/13/2014 in National Columns

That's how many people it took to bring down House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, doom immigration reform and leave all but the most tea-sodden Republicans quaking.

 

 

Our View: Give, but do your homework first

Posted 6/12/2014 in Dispatch Editorials

Earlier this week the Tampa Times released the results of a study on what it calls "America's Worst Charities." Fifty charities were on the list, which you can find at http://www.tampabay.com/americas-worst-charities/.

 

 

Voice of the people: Roger Wade

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Armed and dead

Posted 6/12/2014 in National Columns

So much for the argument that having more people armed in public places will result in fewer gun deaths.

 

Slimantics: At school board, it's business as unusual

Posted 6/11/2014 in Local Columns

Like many folks in Columbus, I read with strange fascination the account of Monday's Columbus Municipal School Board meeting, which shows there is no accounting for taste, I suppose.

 

Susan Estrich: Speaking truth to power

Posted 6/11/2014 in National Columns

One of the hardest things to understand about the whole Bowe Bergdahl exchange is how the White House could be so hopelessly tone deaf as to not understand what was going to happen next.

 

 

Our View: Finally, the Rebels have their day

Posted 6/10/2014 in Dispatch Editorials

"Every dog has its day," goes the old saying. Finally, every Rebel does, too.

 

 

Voice of the people: Jim Hunt

 

 

Froma Harrop: Fight heroin with marijuana

Posted 6/10/2014 in National Columns

A plague of heroin addiction is upon us. Another plague. Heroin was the crisis that prompted Richard Nixon to launch the war on drugs in 1971.

 

 

Voice of the people: Jane and Jim Hunt

 

 

Voice of the people: Melanie Corbell

 

Possumhaw: Gather the hay while you may

Posted 6/9/2014 in Local Columns

Sitting on the homemade bench, my one hand rested on Rex's head. My fingers moved slowly and absentmindedly around his neck and over his long ears. The other hand held a book while I read to him.

 

Charlie Mitchell: Election processes vary more than people know

Posted 6/9/2014 in Local Columns

When a Sunday school class needs to elect a treasurer, a name is put forward and everybody says "aye." That's that. Nice and simple.

 

Ask Rufus: A simple framed Silver Star

Friday was the 70th anniversary of D-Day. It's a day when I always think of my Uncle Orman Kimbrough.

Birney Imes: Local gardeners put on the dog

Posted 6/7/2014 in Local Columns

In the spring Columbus residents quietly and with little fanfare transform their town into an oversized botanical garden.

 

Froma Harrop: Not much to lose in move from coal

Posted 6/6/2014 in National Columns

Barack Obama need not ask how well he's doing in coal country, because the answer is always the same: Not well.

 

Ernie Pyle: D-Day, a pure miracle

Posted 6/6/2014 in National Columns

Due to a last-minute alteration in the arrangements, I didn't arrive on the beachhead until the morning after D-day, after our first wave of assault troops had hit the shore.

 

Ernie Pyle: The Horrible Waste of War
