BOBBY HARRISON: Quick, enjoy the holidays, the Legislature is about to convene

Oh the irony is rich that the sanctity and celebration of the holiday season is followed by the onset of the Mississippi legislative session.

We have this wonderful season that represents hope, a new beginning, not to get too deep, but a new covenant for the world, followed by the Mississippi Legislature, which represents all the fallacies and complexities of the world.

Maybe music great Jason Isbell was right when he penned “You thought God was an architect, now you know he’s something like a pipe bomb ready to blow and everything you built that’s all for show goes up in flames in twenty-four frames.”

If there ever was a pipe bomb ready to explode, it is the Mississippi Legislature. But that is probably not God’s fault.
