So as we ponder whether Monday is actually a sentient being bent on torturing us all, let’s review the top headlines from today’s Journal.
• Board people – Several Northeast Mississippians were among those appointed by Gov. Phil Bryant to various state boards and commissions. I’ve always wondered what it’s like to serve on a board of some kind. Judging by how well I do in meetings, I’d probably slip into a coma.
• Opening eyes – Richard Taylor wants everyone to know that deaf people are just like everyone else, and he’s got a good platform from which to spread his message: student body president at Tupelo High. It’s an inspiring story that maybe can help us shake these Monday blues.
• Back to work – Tupelo’s football team kicks off spring drills Tuesday. The Golden Wave reached the Class 6A state title game last year, beating mighty South Panola along the way. Hath we a power shift in 6A in north Mississippi?
• Broom work – MSU went up to Missouri and swept the Tigers, so the Bulldogs have quickly forgotten that series loss to Ole Miss the previous weekend. Speaking of the Rebels, they lost a series to LSU but have time to bounce back. This is why you don’t judge an SEC baseball team on a single weekend of work.
