Your blog editor is Frank Hurdle. I'm a native of Holly Springs, Mississippi; and a graduate of Ole Miss, B.A. and J.D. I buy and sell rural land and practice law.
My philosophy of life is simple: When society or the free market rewards an activity -- monetarily or through approbation -- then society will get more of that activity. Punish an activity -- through taxation or otherwise -- and you will get less of it. Unfortunately, the geniuses who run this fine country of ours haven't figured this out yet.
You might presume from the name of this blog that I live in Mississippi. Not true. But soon I will be moving back, to Oxford. I'm from Holly Springs, so Oxford is close enough. Looking forward to the City Grocery and walks through town. Not looking forward to the process of moving.
