Summerall: You should get an owner’s manual

July 19, 2013

I’ve noticed that almost everything you buy comes with a manual. Even things that shouldn’t need one, like a hair dryer. You plug it in, set it on high and flip the button that turns it on. It still comes with instructions telling you that it isn’t a good idea to use this appliance in the shower. I don’t know whether the industry is laughing at us or they really believe that people are that stupid. (If you have had a friend or relative who have succumbed to an unfortunate hair dryer related fatality, you have my condolences.)

For a little over four years Lumumba has represented Quinn, who was scheduled to stand trial Monday in Oktibbeha County for killing one person, shooting another, burglarizing the shooting victim’s home and shooting into a dwelling. Lumumba said because of his mayoral status he would not have been able to represent Quinn during the trial, which has been postponed.
