State Farm, citing an oppressive legal climate in Mississippi fostered in large part by Attorney General Jim Hood, wants to hike rates in Mississippi by 13 percent and will drop coverage for homes within 1,000 feet of the coast.
The AP story says Hood wants to review the letter before commenting. What? That’s not like Hood, where’s that gunslinger mentality when you need it to juice up a post? Surely he won’t be able to keep quiet about this — maybe he will call State Farm “unprofessional,” as he did Judge Acker, or perhaps he will borrow from the Trailer Lawyers and call them “Snake Farm.” Maybe a staffer will come up with a new term for Hood to spew, like “Sneak Farm,” “Stink Farm” or “Spite Farm.”
