Well, it's happened about sixty years too late, to do any good.

There's no telling how much that QUISLING did, to hasten Mississippi's descent, to its current Last & Least status. It's impossible to calculate exactly what percentage of the total was due to Bill Minor, and what percentages we owe to all the other opportunist collaborators, like Hodding Carter II, but those collaborations with Mississippi's East Coast Enemies, contributed, one way or another, to the flight from the state, of generations of Mississippi's Best & Brightest.

Jackson's current condition, as the rotting carcass of a once-viable city, can be traced to the alienation and 'corrective' entitlements caused by people like him. The Frankfurt School's Agenda is clearly to divide and destroy, and journalists like Minor (whether unwittingly, as "Useful Idiots", or knowingly, as "Insiders") clearly worked to advance that agenda.

As to Minor's personal character, the recollection, by Wayne Weidie, quoted here by Kingfish, pretty-much sums-up what I've been hearing about Minor, since we moved to Jackson in the Eighties. Jackson Jambalaya: Bill Minor, R.I.P. If anything, Mr. Weidie was too polite.

I doubt most people who left Mississippi were influenced by Minor's columns.

Probably not. It is more likely that the people who left were motivated - or more accurately, propelled - by the people who stayed.
And THOSE were the people who had taken Minor's teaching to heart.
