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.
When I saw this photo of Austin Barbour I immediately thought of Cam Brady
He's a bit younger and fresher of face, but the minute I saw this photo of Austin Barbour at a recent press conference I thought of the Cam Brady character played by Will Ferrell in the Movie "The Campaign."
In that movie Ferrell played a politician who would stop at nothing to get re-elected, much like Thad Cochran, or his handlers.
Barbour, by the way, is the one on the left.
