Thank you for that uplifting article. There are some other wonderful things written by Paul Harvey who pointed out that Mississippi may very well be a closely guarded secret. I'm beginning to think he is right. There are probably many hidden treasures in Mississippi.

I could make a long list of all the great things about Mississippi and all the great people to come out of Mississippi.

Unfortunately, Mr. Harvey is dead.

Yes. He died in 2009. I thought it was more recent. I miss him.

There is no other place with such a rich, diverse tradition of art, music, literature and culture, and no other place that so routinely defies expectations.
I guess your neighbor to the south isn't as good.

This part should have been omitted, but Mississippi does have the strongest literary history of any state (as far as I know).

Hey, Louisiana still has Shreveport, N'awlins and Cajuns. That's three things at least.

And in reference to Paul Harvey:
