Horrifying past creates great drama | Horrifying past creates great drama: "The recent re-examinations of the case, including documentary films and the exhumation of [Emmett} Till's body for DNA testing, have shed new light on the incident, while still leaving unanswered questions. Apex-based actor-playwright Mike Wiley has woven these facts and questions into a riveting evening of theater, 'Dar He: The Lynching of Emmett Till.' The cryptic main title becomes devastatingly clear within the show."

THE BRAD BLOG: "BUSBY/BILBRAY ELECTION IN DOUBT: New Numbers Analyzed while Absentee Ballots Reportedly Increase Margin for Bilbray..."

"...[P]lease note the reported margin seems to be widening between Busby and Bilbray as absentee and provisionals are reportedly being counted, according to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters website. The intially reported 4,700 votes on Election Night has grown to some 6,100 votes at this hour.

Given Busby's concerted campaign, prior to the election, to encourage folks to vote by Absentee Ballot -- as the good Thom Hartmann was kind enough to tip me off to -- the increasing spread in the margin as absentees are tallied is certainly worth watching closely. Particularly with the odd absentee numbers reported that we covered last night."

A new kind of Mississippi civil rights murder unfolding - The Clarion-Ledger

A new kind of Mississippi civil rights murder unfolding - The Clarion-Ledger: "A new kind of Mississippi civil rights murder unfolding
By Sid Salter

While it may not be politically correct to say so, the fact is that Mississippi's back in the civil rights murder business.

For Mississippians of my generation, a civil rights murder means just one thing - a white person killed a black person more or less for the 'crime' of being black - other details optional.

But across this nation, this state and even in the small town where I lay my head at night and go to church on Sunday, a new civil rights murder modus operandi is developing in which a somebody kills a Hispanic person more or less for the 'crime' of being Hispanic - other details optional.

What do Hispanic immigrants in Mississippi today have in common with beseiged African-American citizens in Mississippi in the 1950s and 1960s?"
