My office today: Jackson

I hit the road today for a short trip down I-55 to the Jackson Optimist club’s weekly meeting. Even though I was a last-minute fill-in, I was received warmly by the club. (And I got a hamburger steak and some vegetables. Never underestimate the power of hamburger steak and vegetables.) My mission. To brag on the great work being done by my coworkers at Mississippi Today — and to let them know they needed to be checking us out.
