  • PERRY/Making culture at The Fair

    [Cabin 291: Neshoba County Fair] – Just 1,050 miles (as the mule stumbles) southwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the 2016 Democratic National Convention, a different convention of sorts will soon be wrapping up outside Philadelphia, Mississippi. The 127th Neshoba County Fair certainly has its share of politics with judicial candidates and statewide elected officials scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday, and a planned visit by Donald Trump, Jr. on Tuesday.

    Welcome to a world without rules. (I want you to read this paragraph in your super-scary movie trailer voice.) Welcome to a world in which families are mowed down by illegal immigrants, in which cops die in the streets, in which Muslims rampage the innocents and threaten our very way of life, in which the fear of violent death lurks in every human heart.

    Sometimes in that blood-drenched world a dark knight arises. You don’t have to admire or like this knight. But you need this knight. He is your muscle and your voice in a dark, corrupt and malevolent world.
