Daily Lead 4.21.14: Monday schmonday

monday-ftMondays are a horrible thing. Today I’ve already had to go to the dentist, which made me late for work, and then my favorite coffee shop was closed for renovations. Also, it’s Monday.


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.
