Check out this new unique device — it’s pretty cool stuff

I have a UDID. It’s not what you think. UDID stands for unique device identifier. Every iPhone and iPad has its own set of numbers which will allow app designers to track usage. Folks, it’s a brave new world. Last summer, I had an idea for a financial app called “Crazy Money.” I submitted the […]

Report on Mississippi’s economy has poor cause, effect relations

I did a double-take when I picked up my morning Clarion-Ledger. The headline read, “Mississippi’s Economic Outlook Ranks in Top 10 Nationally, Annual Report Says.” Seriously? While I love trumpeting good news about my state, I’m no Pollyanna. Was this a Rip Van Winkle thing? Did I go to sleep for 20 years and miss […]

Hey Guv, maybe it’s old men, not working women, ruining our kids’ education

My daughter will be 32 this summer, but she’s still my baby. I’m just so proud of her. Recently, she let me read a proposal she had written for academic research. I was astounded by her command of the English language and her ability to communicate an idea… especially since she had the disadvantage of […]

Chokwe Lumumba has a lot to learn about the economics of running a city

I don’t live in Jackson, but neither do most of the folks on my Facebook feed. That didn’t stop them from ranting about the outcome of the Jackson mayoral primary. The Facebook equivalent of “run for your lives” filled my screen. Shocked posters declared the election had been rigged. With only about 37,000 votes cast […]

Rep. Andy Gipson a 19th century man with 19th century ideas on guns

I know Mississippi Rep. Andy Gipson. He’s a really nice guy, has a nice family, very sweet people. You’ve heard the phrase, “He’s a renaissance man?” Doesn’t apply to Andy. Instead, I’d call him a solid nineteenth century man, as in “His feet are solidly planted in the 1800s.” When I knew Andy, he lived […]

U.S. Postal Service can survive structural change, not inevitable

Communication with clients has drastically changed over the last decade. While we still send out quarterly reports in the old U.S. mail packet with a formal letter, other mailings are rare. E-mail is the favored method these days, and it surprises me that my older clients are well-versed in this area. We even text clients […]

Don’t give up the farm for the sole sake of being ‘Business friendly’

Ask any accountant, “How do you increase the bottom line?” The answer will always be one of two things. You either increase revenue or you decrease expenses. To increase your bottom line without one of those options is to defy the laws of bookkeeping. It can’t be done. As legislators pore over the State budget, […]

Money troubles, like those of Vicksburg mayor Paul Winfield, show signs of more trouble

Show me somebody with money trouble, and I’ll show you a crook in the making! While not everyone who finds themselves in a financial bind ends up breaking the law, many are tempted to cross the line when their wallets get squeezed. People with money troubles are desperate. They take chances. They make questionable choices. […]

Bubbas’ gun-toatin’ teacher law makes Mississippi look foolish again

Nancy Anderson, MBJ contributing columnist

Bubba strikes again! Our House of Representatives here in Mississippi recently passed a bill allowing ANY school employee to carry a gun on school grounds. From the Lunch Lady to Joe the Janitor, they’ll all be armed. This could be the break the homeschoolers were looking for. Junior didn’t do his homework? Forget detention. Now […]
