Here’s my NYT dispatch from the Neshoba County Fair. You want some history? Here’s Reagan’s (infamous, to some) 1980 “states’ rights” speech. And here is NPR on the 50th anniversary of Neshoba County’s undeniably infamous crime — a nice piece on modern-day Mississippi, an on atonement, memory and regret.
A few noteworthy blogospheric riffs on my piece for The Times yesterday on the Cochran-McDaniel race in Mississippi: representing the right, Breitbart, over here; and, representing the left, Ed Kilgore in the Washington Monthly, over here.
Happy reading, divided America!
