Leonard Pitts Jr.: It can happen here

Posted 10/13/2019 in National Columns

I was maybe 10 years old when this happened. Mom is driving, I'm in the back seat. It's night. She's trying to cross Vermont, a busy L.A. thoroughfare, from a side street. Southbound traffic is jammed, but a guy in a truck makes a hole and waves us through. We've almost cleared the intersection when a car, speeding northbound, clips us. We go spinning up over a low brick wall onto somebody's lawn. My head smacks the window hard enough to crack it. And I remember thinking -- I may have even screamed it -- "This can't happen to us!"

Larry Elder: The rise of young black conservatives

Posted 10/10/2019 in National Columns

This past weekend, I spoke for the second time at the second annual Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., hosted by Turning Point USA. Turning Point was founded in 2012 by then-18-year-old Charlie Kirk. Its website describes its goal as seeking "to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government."

Brett Kittredge: Tread carefully before kicking Airbnb out of your town

Posted 10/9/2019 in Local Columns

It is generally considered a good thing if there is high demand for short-term vacation rentals in your city. And the reasons for this demand in Starkville are obvious.

 

Slimantics: State candidates are backed into a corner on taxes

Posted 10/8/2019 in Local Columns

One of the interesting things about watching candidates for statewide races is how they have to tiptoe around the issues that continue to face our state. From roads and bridges to education to the tenuous condition of our rural hospitals, every candidate who isn't Tate Reeves thinks we have serious problems.
