On cue, the anti-Obama is behaving very unstimuluslike.
I learned back in college that William Faulkner's wife made a remark to him about the "light in August," giving him the name for one of his novels. (If you still can't guess which one, Google it.)
What do Starkville and Oxford have in common?

Do you feel like you're being watched?
If you were strolling down the Riverwalk in the evening hours over the past three weeks, you probably were.
Maybe we picked the wrong time to start all these smoking bans. Tobacco's on a roll.
The Tennessee Williams Home and Welcome Center at the corner of Main and Third streets -- and much of the block it sits on -- is abuzz with activity. Tuesday, a platoon of workers was laying the foundation for the new condominiums and office building behind the welcome center. The new building, which is being constructed by local developer Mark Castleberry, will have the Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau as a downstairs tenant.
