Here's to the land you've torn out the hear of.That's the refrain of an old Phil Ochs song about the racism and corruption and general backwardness of the Magnolia State. There's still much to complain of in that bit of the deep south. In fact, just the other day, I pointed out that by a 5-4 vote the Mississippi Supreme Court was prepared to let Willie Manning be killed rather than order DNA and fingerprint testing and the like in a case riddled with uncertainty.
Mississippi, find yourself another country to be part of.
But that was so April 25th.
And this is May.
Same court. 8-1 vote. Stay granted.
