A rose to all those who have raised the tone of discourse as we await the final results of the Columbus mayoral race. While election
It didn’t take long for the powers that be to kill reverse auctions — about two years or so.
There is nothing like a good front porch in the summer. In the South it is traditionally a favorite gathering place to visit with family and friends, hear a good story and enjoy a cool beverage on a hot day or muggy evening.
We will not know the official outcome of Tuesday’s mayoral race until next week, after as many as 53 mail-in absentee ballots postmarked on election day are added to the official count.

The 21st century COVID-19 pandemic taught people many lessons about life and death from a very close proximity, though not necessarily physically close in many cases.

When Sen. Joe Manchin announced he would oppose the For the People Act, Steve Benen of MSNBC spoke for many Democrats when he declared that “Joe Manchin is prepared to be remembered by history as the senator who did little more than hope as his country’s democracy unraveled.”

Beginning on July 15, most Mississippi parents will begin receiving a monthly child tax credit payment from the federal government. How do you get the most value from these dollars? We have one idea families may want to consider. But first, a little about the credit itself.
Kamala Harris has been vilified by critics on the right, but the people who may end up detesting her most are not conservatives or even contemporaries. They are future vice presidents, who will curse her for loading up the office with heavy burdens.
The Chinese communist government is going to permit three children per family. How nice. Here’s how The New York Times put it: “The announcement by
Just when you thought our political leaders could not divide us any further, they have now turned on themselves. Right now, both parties are dealing with internal conflicts. The Democrats are struggling between the so called “progressives” (I still believe they are not using that term correctly) and the “moderates.”
It’s hard to imagine that the day has come to protect our democracy on our home soil. But it’s here. Trump has been telling people
Not that long ago, American shoppers cleaned store shelves of toilet paper. Pandemic panic had fueled the run on toilet paper, the point of it never clear.
