In your campaign, you emphasized the need for change, and I want to respectfully challenge you to reconsider your position on the abortion issue, and by so doing guaranteeing freedom and liberty for “the least of these,” i.e., countless lives waiting to be born.
My disapproval notwithstanding, if the Legislature authorizes The W to sell the Carrier Lodge property, it is imperative that the school receives the maximum amount available from ANY willing buyer. This means no private, non-competitive purchase.
I was most pleased to see that Travis Childers and Bennie Thomson voted “YES” on the economic stimulus bill. I, on the other hand, think it most shameful that the rest of the Congressmen from the poorest state in the country voted a big “NO.” What do Senators Wicker and Cochran and Representatives Taylor and Harper think will alleviate the economic crisis in Mississippi?

That was a great column on Sunday about Catfish Alley ... and I loved the title!
The Catfish Alley article was interesting. Those tapes should have a lot of history about Columbus during the last century.
I have enjoyed the write-ups on Catfish Alley. I remember the very first Bob's was in Catfish Alley.
In Mr. Bill Parker’s letter, The teaching of science, Feb. 3, he blames “anti-science” movements for crippling teacher’s effort to teach science, especially evolution.

A letter last week from Bob Raymond questioning the origin of the name Catfish Alley reminded me of research a friend did on the subject years ago. The friend, Mark Gooch, is a Birmingham-based photographer.
