    But then again, we ARE talking about MississIppi here. I’m not surprised. This state is in another time continuum, one that perhaps only Texas surpasses. As these type of southerners would say, long live the Confederacy! Perhaps we should let Ol’ Miss and Texas secede and save the American gene pool.
