In a recent column about his daughter's wedding, Commercial Appeal editor Chris Peck dropped this nugget of wisdom: "Weddings have it all over funerals." Well, the first dance is less awkward, anyway.

The Rev. George Brooks is back and in rare form. For those who can't remember the last congressional election, Brooks is the Jew-bashing minister from Murfreesboro who has been conducting a one-man war against U.S. congressman Steve Cohen who, according to Brooks, is unfit to represent Christians. A recent letter from Brooks included this photo of Cohen engaged in the ancient pastime of "getting up in the grill" of a giant Jesus.

Got Them Charges

Have you been caught sipping on that Goose or rolling on that X and the police won't let you loose unless you come up with a check? Well, too bad. T.
