Historian

GRADY HOWELL knows the exact date when he became a historian.

Go figure.

“It was July 3, 1955. I was eight years old, and it was the first time I’d seen Vicksburg,” Howell says.

“Before that day, I was a cowboy.

“But we were driving through Vicksburg in our ‘48 Chevy, and we saw the cannons and the trench lines [from the Civil War], and something clicked,” he says.

Howell, a Biloxi native, spent the rest of his life pursuing and learning from history.

Sanders' views advance polarization

In a recent article David Sanders attempts to make the case that progressives are moving the country toward totalitarianism. Yet, the tone of his article reflects the same strategy totalitarians have historically used to gain and maintain control, i.e., using emotionally charged words and labels to demonize those who disagree with them.
