Summerall: Proud to be from Mississippi

March 30, 2013

We as Mississippians are often looked down on by those from other parts of the country who consider themselves more “enlightened or progressive” than us. I saw an example of this on Facebook. A friend had posted a story about a homeless woman being fired from her job at KFC in Tupelo, because she had no physical address. The first person to jump on the bashing bandwagon was a professor from Penn State who promptly said,

States on the right track with anti-abortion legislation

March 27, 2013

Earlier this week, the Republican governor of North Dakota, Jack Dalrymple, signed into law anti-abortion legislation that will take effect this August, some of which is the strongest the nation has seen yet to challenge the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in our nation.

Summerall: Old soldiers

March 23, 2013

My dad was one of those lucky few who went into the military to serve his country during a slow period. By that I mean he went into the Air Force after the Korean War and before the Vietnam War. It didn’t make him any less patriotic, I just think it made him less likely to die. He had his opinions on the war in Vietnam. None were complementary to the men who burned their draft cards or ran away to Canada. I can still remember how angry he was when President Ford pardoned the “draft dodgers.” His feelings toward “Hanoi” Jane Fonda were worse. Much worse.

Brinkley: In the face of death

March 21, 2013

Execution has always been the fate of the worst criminals, bandits and outlaw. Once a condemned man is sent to the gallows society never has to worry about him again. We don’t have to feed him. We don’t have to maintain a jail cell for him. We don’t have to worry about medical expenses for him. There is no cost associated with him after that because they always go from the gallows straight to the grave.
