State Supreme Court Justice Randy ‘Bubba’ Pierce published second novel

It would make for a great news story: A popular Mississippi Republican governor, up for re-election against a Democratic female lieutenant governor in a campaign replete with mudslinging, backdoor politics and the like.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on point of view), it’s not for the front page of the newspaper. It’s the plot of Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Randy “Bubba” Pierce’s new novel, Magnolia Mud.
