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.
Pictured above are members of the 1939 or 1940 Holly High Tiger football team. Presumably the boys in the white uniforms are ninth-graders. This photo was from my Dad's office.
On the front row, sixth from left is Shep Smith. Eighth from left is my father, Sidney Hurdle. On the second row, eighth from left is Blanton Jones.
As always, click on the photo for a bigger copy. I will update this if I am provided with any more names.
