        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)

                  So why was Bill Clinton in town Thursday?

                  Was former President Bill Clinton in Oxford on Thursday to stump for U.S. Rep. Travis Childers or was he just making another stop on a Get Out And Vote campaign nationwide? Or, as Editor Don Whitten writes, wasn’t it both – plus urging the Ole Miss students to get out and help the Democrats protect the gains that group helped them get two years ago? (October 15, 2010, Page 4A)
