The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 7/25/7

Over the course of three days this week, some 72 politicians – from Neshoba County Place 1 constable candidate Wesley Ward to Gov. Haley Barbour – will hold forth under the tin roof of the pavilion under the old oaks on Founder’s Square at the Neshoba County Fair.

For those of us who are residents of the fairgrounds, the long days of seemingly endless political speeches are as blessings and curses. The speeches bring visitors to the fairgrounds and visitors bring the promise of renewed friendships and the fellowship of a cabin full of company sharing meals with us.
