    Do we really need term limit legislation?

    Term limits – good or bad? They’re good if you like keeping folks in elected office that do a good job. They’re bad if you believe fresh blood and fresh ideas are needed. Editor Don Whitten notes that term limits can be set without legislation – by voters going to the ballot box and limiting terms of those they want out of office but yet leaving in those they want to keep. (October 22, 2010, Page 4A)

              Must Be Murph

              In most parts of the world, he’s known as “Murphy.” In the Mississippi Delta, he’s “Murph” – but he still has his law that states that what can go wrong, will.

                  Morning person? Or perhaps a night owl?

                  Are you a morning person, one of those people that somehow gets up and going every morning without a hitch? Or perhaps a night owl, one who struggles through hitting the snooze button several times and still needs help and a shot of caffeine? Maybe, you’re somewhere in between. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at all three and wonders if heredity or environment decides which you’ll be. (October 18, 2010, Page 4A)
