Lawmaker: N.Y.'s Rangel owes Mississippi an apology - CNN.com

Mississippi is one of those states that gets more - much more - than it gives in terms of federal dollars.

If I remember correctly, Pickering's father was one of those right wing activist judges that Bush put on the Federal bench with a recess appointment. Then there is Trent Lott, who said the country would have been much better off if Strom Thurmond had been elected presdient in 1948. The state has a long history of racism, and as part of the Confederacy, helped kill hundreds of thousands of American soldiers. Lawmaker: N.Y.'s Rangel owes Mississippi an apology - CNN.com
