Who’s on first
The only thing both parties agree on is that deficits are only bad if the other party is in power.
USM needs to leave Conference USA for a major conference like Houston, TCU and Louisville did. That is why attendance is down. Was a USM football game even televised this year?
The “It’s snowing!” photo on the front page of Saturday’s Sun Herald is proof that a picture is worth a thousand words. I challenge any wordsmith to better describe the young lady’s joy.
Save the trees
The city elite and their government pawns have been trying to get rid of the Lovers Lane trees in Ocean Springs for years and years. Now they’re sneaking tree removal in one tree — then two, then four at a time for reasons that on the surface look “good.” The new mayor needs to do some studying before he gets on the approval boat.
If President Trump had decided to skip the dedication do you think the Democrats would have said it was a snub and insult to the civil rights community?
Surely, you jest when you suggest that there would have been an outcry if Trump had not attended the Civil Rights Museum opening. It would have been accepted and in fact, expected. I’m sorry he choose to attend. He manages to stir up messes wherever he goes. I’m beginning to think he enjoys creating chaos and controversy.
I am a 74-year old-white man who recognizes bigotry. Our president has a cozy relationship with the KKK, neo-Nazis and Steve Bannon. David Duke said, “Our time has finally come.” Our president never had a cross draped with a rebel flag burned in his front yard. I do not send this in anger. I simply want my fellow Christians to think and pray.
Ray Mabus has once again proven himself to be little more than a party hack. How sad and embarrassing.
President Trump is the kind of person that whatever goes through his mind comes out of his mouth. As president he should have learned to monitor his bigotry. Now people have a right to avoid his showmanship at the Civil Rights Museum.
It’s a sad day for Mississippi when prominent leaders here object to our president coming to commemorate the opening of our two new museums. President Trump is not a racist, but is being met with racism. This will be a lost chance to come together in friendship and mutual respect. By their inserting politics into everything, can we ever overcome the stigma of racism in Mississippi? It seems not.
