Morning. Woulda said “good morning,” but it’s not. Mondays – bleah.
As we ponder the unfortunate confluence of stupid people and the Internet, let us review the top stories from today’s Journal.
• Dirty Water, Part III – Sonny Noble, the whistleblower who was fired by the North Lee County Water Association, wants his job back. NLCWA manager Jim Banker said Noble wasn’t fired for giving the Journal public documents detailing gross financial mismanagement and other shenanigans; it was just a coincidence, I suppose, that Noble was canned the same day our initial story came out. Mr. Banker obviously takes us all for complete morons; the feeling is mutual, sir.
• Gas meeting – Proponents of natural gas as a home energy source will have their say tonight in a meeting held by Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley. The tool Presley is unveiling is modeled after his “Zap the Gap” programs for cell phone and Internet service. Wonder what he’ll call this initiative … perhaps, “Get Gas.”
• Rebels romp – Ole Miss took two of three at MSU over the weekend, rolling to a 12-2 win Sunday. Except for a bad half-inning Saturday, the Rebels thoroughly dominated the Bulldogs in this series, outscoring them 23-9 over the three games.
• They got moves – These three local teens do something called animation dancing, and we’ve got video in case you wanna give it a try. Looks like a good office-bonding activity.
