Jamie Stiehm: New book offers fresh perspectives on Lincolns, Abe and Mary Todd

Posted 4/16/2016 in National Columns

It's high Lincoln season, bittersweet as it can be in remembrance of the slain Civil War president.

The spectacular strangeness of this presidential election may require a new display in Ripley's Odditorium of believe-it-or-nots. Among the exhibits, curators might place the History of Conventional Wisdom, wherein the page titled "Populists Never Win in America" has a large, red X drawn through the word "never."

 

 

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.
