Charlie Mitchell: Session among most shameful in state’s history

With near unanimity, the state’s media and a bevy of others, including the president and first lady of the United States, have railed with increasing intensity against the 2016 session. “Idiots” is one of the kinder words seen in social media.

In the movie, the passenger didn’t deserve a beating, yet it was funny.

Legislators do deserve the hits they are taking, and it isn’t funny.

The session will go down in history as one of the most pointless and shameful in history. Bills that made it to the governor’s desk didn’t do anybody much good and did Mississippians a lot of harm. Reactionary bills. Defensive bills. Shallow bills. Bills for their buddies.
