The Saturday night line

It's open to you. Some finals words:

* PRIZE-WINNING BARBECUE: John T. Edge is a winner of one of this year's James Beard Foundation's prizes for writing about food, the MFK Distinguished Writing Award. Edge is a Mississippian, but his win was for an article in Saveur, "BBQ Nation," that we've mentioned before because it writes about Jones Bar-B-Q Diner in Marianna. Here's the winning article.

* HOUSING HUBBUB: FYI: The suspension of Shelly Ehenger as executive director of the Metroplitan Housing Alliance followed her suspension Tuesday of Kim Travis, with pay, as the agency's director of administrative services, according to copies of e-mails I've been supplied by a confidential source. My request for these e-mails under the FOI is pending because of agency legal concerns about privacy issues in the personnel matter. Travis was suspended by Ehenger after complaining at some length about being left out of agency personnel decisions as well as about other facets of Ehenger's leadership.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
