Wrapping up the day that was from DJournal.com and elsewhere.
• Tunsil talk – Man, y’all must be starved for some football. This story about Ole Miss offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil, which published two days ago, is the runaway most-clicked story today. I’m sure this says something about y’all’s character.
• Barney Fife says it’s a good start – The state House passed a bill today legalizing marijuana oil, which can be used to help treat children who suffer from seizures. So yeah, it’s a far cry from what’s happened in Colorado and Washington, which is where a certain Journal reader would like to see Mississippi go.

• Big decision (Inside Ole Miss Sports) – What to do with 296-pound quarterback Jeremy Liggins, other than stare slack-jawed as he rumbles around in the pocket? Ole Miss has time to figure it out, and Liggins would do well to drop some pounds, although there’s something to be said for being the next Jared Lorenzen.

• Baggage claimed – This ought to make you feel good about flying. Six Los Angeles International Airport workers have been arrested – more likely will be – amid suspicion they stole valuables from passengers’ luggage. Yeah, I prefer taking my car anyway.
