Christmas (or, as the ACLU calls it, End of Year Non-Religious Time of Feasting, Shopping, and Diversity Celebrations) is a time of giving.

Because of budgetary considerations brought on by higher prices and increased shipping costs, I...

FOR Mississippi State University supporters, good things occasionally come in bunches. Two landmark events happened in the month just past: an epic whip-up job on the LSU Tigers and the public debut of the Cowbelt, a holster designed to keep...

Dear Editor:

Your article in the September 4 edition of the Northside Sun was special. I have been tempted to write previously when certain articles have been good ... the old saying that the road to the bad place is paved by good...

Ordinarily, when a senior citizen announces that his stool is today’s discussion topic, the room empties faster than a split grocery bag. So stay where you are; the stool we’re going to examine is metal, and it illustrates what a...

The Washington Post, the New York Daily News, Time, and National Public Radio recently warned of a national shortage of clowns. Many in the elite media even used different adjectives to describe this looming disaster, which tells you just how...

One hundred years ago, at seven in the evening on the first day of August, a German officer named Feldmann led his infantry company into the idyllic Luxembourg hamlet of Troisvierges. In so doing, his unit violated that tiny country’s...

He showed up before the end of World War II - 1945 for you youngsters - and he lived almost 20 years. I don’t know where he came from, but for the first five or six years of his life, he was my dog - the first of only three I ever had....

Best efforts notwithstanding, writers sometimes leave things out of a column that should have been included. If the omission is serious enough, you hear from readers.

The first television commercial in the United States aired on July 1, 1941, and not six months later, Japanese air and naval forces destroyed Pearl Harbor. Coincidence? I’m not sure. But that first commercial began the march to a world...

Marie Osmond tells me on television that she lost 50 pounds eating pre-packaged meals sent to her home. That reminded me of childhood mealtimes and my grandmother’s nutritional malfeasance.

Until well after World War II ended in...

Sixty years ago I learned the two things you say to a police officer: “Yes” and “Yes, sir.” I still live by that rule and am a confirmed supporter of law and order.

For more than a half-century, when you motored north on I-55, you saw a group of squat, buff-colored two-story buildings on your right just before the Meadowbrook Road exit. Built in the 1950s, these were the “new’” homes of...
