Column: B.B. King

You probably know that the crying songs of the blues rose up from the flat, silvery cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta.

Column: Beautiful, but deadly

I was driving back from a speaking event in Lake City, the town that reinvented itself thanks to art and the vision and financial support of Darla Moore. Lake City was a tobacco town once, but we all know why tobacco fell out of grace. Well, don't worry about Lake City. What a vibrant town, and when you drive around town you see all these warehouses. Those warehouses make for some fine art galleries now when ArtFields comes to Lake City each spring.

Column: The juror who could save America

WASHINGTON -- Juror No. 0302 may not have sought fame, but Paula Duncan will long be remembered in connection with Paul Manafort, whom she and 11 others convicted on eight counts of financial crime.

Column: What should GOP moderates do?

I make no bones about the fact that I consider myself a centrist, moderate Democrat. When it comes to the country's finances, I don't believe in the pie-in-the-sky schemes of the extreme left-wingers in the party. On social issues, on the other hand, I admit to being pretty liberal, and yet am completely open to finding middle ground with moderate Republicans.

Column: Meeting Tink’s childhood

A couple of years ago, Tink took me to visit the upper scale Connecticut town where his childhood and teenage years were spent.

Column: Moment of Nature - Aug. 24, 2018

Trees provide necessary places for all types of animals and insects to use as a lounge, a home, a nursery and daycare center as well as a restaurant. One such insect that uses trees for one-stop shopping is the fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea), a common native caterpillar. These little caterpillars hatch from eggs that were laid on the underside of leaves in early summer. As they grow they form a protective webbed barrier around themselves and their leafy food source. As its name implies, the 'web'worm forms a cobweb on the ends of twigs, clumping them together for protection.

Column: Politicians don't get the internet

Here's the bad news: We can't trust Silicon Valley to police itself. That has become abundantly clear from the many scandals involving Russian disinformation campaigns, Cambridge Analytica, Twitter bots, secret data breaches, Google geo-tracking and the like.

Column: Just a little road weary

There's an old joke about a guy who bumps into a friend he hasn't seen in awhile. The guy immediately notices that his friend's arm is in cast from wrist to shoulder.

Column: Miss Etta and the Lord

The steam of a Mississippi Delta morning was starting to take hold as I sat under a magnolia tree in front of the grand, old courthouse in Greenwood. Fifteen yards away was the muddy Tallahatchie River. The cars hummed over the bridge as I sat quietly reading the works of Miss Eudora Welty.

Column: A call to rescue 74 dogs

How would you respond if someone asked you to rescue 74 dogs? Now what if that same person asked you to rescue those 74 dogs … tomorrow?

Column: A time to mourn

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. -- Ecclesiastes tells us that there's a time to mourn and a time to dance, but lately I can hardly find time to mourn -- and I'm dancing as fast as I can.

Column: Something ‘wicked’ this way comes

It's been four years and a week since we lost the comedic genius of Robin Williams.

Column: The truth of the truth

Several years back -- I believe it would have been eight or nine years ago -- I was in Nashville on a book tour for my publisher. Nashville was always good to me with lots of radio and television appearances, good crowds at the signings, and a spot on its best-seller lists.

Column: Meet you at the river!

In 1747, William Payne stood on the bank of the Wateree River at the mouth of Twenty-five Mile Creek and took in the view around him. The river was wide here and the water flowed swiftly south toward the Carolina coast. The creek was a bold stream as it flowed into the Wateree. He had not explored its upper reaches yet, but it offered good prospects for a mill seat where he could grind grain and saw logs. The land at the river's edge was flat and fairly low, but it rose gently to a moderately high bank as ...

Column: It’s a dog-eat-dog White House

WASHINGTON -- No sooner had I ordered the 2011 book "Less Than Human" for a late-summer read than President Trump called Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog" and a "lowlife." Those two slurs fit nicely into author David Livingstone Smith's philosophical study of man's capacity to inflict cruelty by first dehumanizing the "other."
