FROM THE "AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH" FILE
Thanks to the Mississippi political blog Magnolia Politics for the picture. He was lamenting that four days prior a station near his home in Starkville was selling gas for $2.25/gallon; as of Saturday it was $2.56/gallon...and there had not been a refueling of the station during the period.
And speaking of the Magnolia State, the Jackson Free Press has a great interview with one of Mississippi's greatest governors, William Winter. He is known as the state's "education governor", and helped bring it across the threshold into the "New South"...quite a feat for a former segregationist who learned the lessons of brotherhood, regardless of race, while in the service of his country in the United States Army.
I consider Winter, now 82 years young and still practicing law in Jackson, Mississippi's equivilant to Lawton Chiles.
