Andy Kennedy

Like the warm and fuzzies? Get involved

COLUMN: Remember basketball? Oh now, sure you do – it’s that indoor sport you can’t tailgate for, before or during, that Ole Miss fans treat with the horrible paradox of indifference in the way of actual support and fierce, aggressive criticism. (more…) (May 14, 2013, Page 8)

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

They had the big St. Patrick’s Day parade in Jackson and the Chicago River flowed green for a while Sunday, but there were no big public celebrations in Oxford.
