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.
Americans are continuing their march from the center if viewership of cable news networks is any indicator.

The network that is sucking air, and sucking air hard, is CNN. That network is slightly liberal, but not generally perceived as being far left in the way that MSNBC is.
