A recent essay in the New York Times tells the story of a life in poverty. This same story could be told of countless individuals in Mississippi.
  • Upon the memory and truthfulness of Christine Blasey Ford hangs the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, his reputation, and possibly his career on the nation’s second highest court.
  • If Franz Kafka had written about confirmation hearings, he couldn’t have come up with a better scenario than the one now unfolding in the U.S. Senate. 
  • President Trump’s vision for replacing the holes in the ground left when the World Trade Center towers fell on Sept. 11, 2001, was to build them back stronger, straight, and one floor taller. His vision of defiance was not to be, and instead one building in place of two stands now as Manhattan’s rebuke and challenge to benighted terrorists with evil ideas.
  • PAID POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT/Bruce McKinley running for Circuit Judge
    Madison County Justice Court Judge, Bruce McKinley, announces his candidacy for Circuit Court Judge for Madison and Rankin Counties.  Judge McKinley has served as Justice Court Judge since 2011, being unopposed in 2015.
  • DUNCAN/The Son of Promise
    Turn to Genesis 21:1-21. A great suspense has been building ever since we heard the announcement in Genesis 12 that the Lord was going to fulfill His promises to Abraham by making Him a father.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Hebrews 11:24-28
    Hebrews Chapter 11 is a chapter about faith. The epistle is written to Jewish Christians scattered outside of Jerusalem, probably in Italy, and suffering persecution for their faith in Christ. The apostle uses chapter 11 to give examples of people of faith in the past that experienced challenges to their faith in trials. The exhortation is for Christians in trials to look to the same Lord these people did.
  • This summer, the sex scandal that has bedeviled the Catholic Church went critical.
  • A judicial process that doesn’t allow the accused to cross-examine his accuser or reliably see the evidence against him is a civil libertarian’s nightmare. It traduces every principle of fairness and is blatantly un-American.
  • EDITORIAL/The Democrat Gong Show
    The Democrats, notably including the editors of The New York Times, have decided that the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings are but a charade, and they’re right for once. But they’re right, alas, for the wrong reason
  • If Trump’s supporters are truly “a basket of deplorables ... racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” and “irredeemable,” as Hillary Clinton described them to an LGBT crowd, is not shunning and shaming the proper way to deal with them?
