esquire.com – Being our semi-regular weekly survey of what’s goin’ down in the several states where, as we know, the real work of governmentin’ gets done, and where anybody can be just like me, obviously.
Let’s begin this week in Mississippi Goddamn. Believe it or not, the way Mississippi funds its public schools blows a considerable number of goats. A little more than a year ago, an organization called the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents got serious about a campaign to change the state’s constitution to make it easier for underfunded school districts to sue the state for more money. This was a rough and noisy campaign. Feathers were ruffled. Fee-fees were wounded.
