I hope y’all had an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving and most of all that you avoided the so-called Black Friday scourge and in any context did not get pepper-sprayed.
I myself had a few minutes to think this weekend, and all the sudden I realized that I forgot to run the Piney Woods poll results last week. Memory is the first thing to go, or at least I think that’s what I heard one time . . .
Anyway, here they are. I was happy to see the John Ford House from Mississippi’s pioneer period pull out in front, followed very closely by the wonderfully Art Deco Hattiesburg P.O. and Saenger Theater. Either due to voter inattention so close to the holidays or voter apathy, Piney Woods set a new low for total votes, with 335, four below the 339 of the Central region.
Only one more poll to go (Jackson) before we can run the numbers (I’ve got a real live statistician interested in doing this–says it will be a snap) and publish the final list of 101 Mississippi Places to See Before You Die!
