An interesting post about the messed-up tax structure in Mississippi, our current gubernatorial race (bizaaaarre--see the NYTimes article entitled "In Mississippi, Democrat Runs in G.O.P. Lane," : http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/10/us/10governor.html?_r=1&ei=5018&en=25841aa8d8ef109a&ex=1192680000&partner=BRITANNICA&pagewanted=print&oref=slogin ),
and the reasons behind our dubious distinction as #1 in the country for poverty levels. See also my comment in response--the poster brings up some interesting info, I think, but is way off-base on a couple of points.
"Only in Mississippi...."
