run, Ben, run away from mass hysteria



Downtown Jackson, MS looks as if it has been bombed.
If I drive faster than three miles per hour on Capitol Street I'll lose a tire.
Later I sit in a conference and listen to lawyers talk about ethics and warnings.

Last night a friend calls to tell me Mississippi is now touted as number one in corruption.

We have obviously been given a gift within the decades of beat downs by the national media because somewhere along the way my generation learned to look into the eyes of their children and say, Baby, not one other single human being gets to tell you who you are. You get to define yourself in this world.


Today I am grateful for the lady who sat next to me and told me her life story.
