Payday perception not reality

The payday lending industry has a perception problem. As a payday lender myself, I realize that there are people in the community where I live and work who believe payday loans are a last resort financial option used only by the desperate. The people who think this have never taken out a payday loan. They […] [...]

Tags: MBJ letter to the editor

Editor, I loved the part of this article (Poll: Republicans more unpopular than Democrats, 09/24/10) that states Democrats are worried the GOP-run Congress would return the country to the days of government shutdowns and attempts to privatize Social Security. I hope they do! That was why this country was founded. To limit government. To have […] [...]

MBJ should keep digging

In the Kemper hearings, the Sierra Club’s counsel, Robert Wiygul, argued that the rate hike that would result from the Kemper plant should not be withheld from the public. But he did not prevail. Sadly, we were almost on the road to avoiding a 45-square-mile strip mine of the headwaters of the Pascagoula and a […] [...]

Choice of hospitals is best for Madison County

by Published: August 29,2010

I have moved here from Tennessee and watched the same thing transpire in Memphis, Germantown, Collierville and Olive Branch, Miss.

Editor, If (State Sen. Lee Yancy) is so gung-ho about about immigration laws being “a matter of national security and public safety” and wants legislation “similar to the Arizona law combating illegal immigration,” how does he feel about punishing corporations like Howard Industries for hiring illegal aliens? Some of these Mississippi lawmakers are such hippocrits […] [...]

Country tortoise leads the condescending hares

Tags: Haley Barbour, letters to editor

Editor, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is a rarity into today’s political world of media breathlessness and partisan blindness. He’s the countrified tortoise leading a pack of condescending hares. Barbour has been the adult in the crowd from Day One of the Gulf oil spill. All along he’s called for restraint in both media words and […] [...]
