Where it's at

With apologies to Beck, I've got two websites and a microphone.  I passed along the two websites to "Doloroso" in comments on the Kay Cobb post below, but I didn't want them to get lost in the shuffle.

First, we have Hungry Blues, which is where Ben Greenberg explores the South his father knew during the Civil Rights Era.  Ben is active in the Civil Rights Cold Case Project, and has worked with Jerry Mitchell in the past.  He dug through some newsletters of the Mississippi CCC, and posted interesting tidbits he found.

Next is C.W. Roberson's Mississippi Political, a website subtitled "News, Essays, Opinion, Progressive Views."  A list of Mississippi politicians attending or speaking at CCC functions appears on his website.

That's two websites, now for the microphone:  "Editor" of the Mississippi CCC website, I want to ask you to do two things for me, neither of which would be a problem, I don't think.  First, please tell us who you are.  You know who I am, and it's nice to be able to call someone by their Christian name when having a conversation.  Second, would you have any problem giving me access to any archives the CCC may have? Old newsletters, photos, programs, etc.? I'd like to be able to learn more about your organization, its beliefs, and political affiliations so that I don't mischaracterize them in any way.

Ronnie Musgrove, Mike Moore, Bill Minor, Ronnie Shows ... this list is becoming harder to use as a stick to beat Barbour with, unfortunately.

(And sitting U.S. District Judge Mike Mills, back in his state-rep days. The only judge besides Kay Cobb it seems, and not a judge then. It actually speaks well of our supreme court that only one justice is known to've addressed them.)

It's no defense to complain of a similar transgression by others. Little Johnny still gets punished for putting his hand in the cookie jar, regardless of whether Susie did it, too.

True, but we're not talking law, we're talking rhetoric.
