Out of the Closet: Southhaven Mayor Greg Davis announces intention to join the Log Cabin Republicans

Davis also finally had to admit to the public what many folks already knew: He is gay.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal is all over this story, which explains why my post on the topic, the first in the new or old media about the why behind Davis’ embezzlement problems has gone viral in north Mississippi today.  Off to the Log Cabin with you Greg as your days in office in Mississippi are winding down quickly.

One day the electorate of this state will see “family values” is just a cheap meaningless GOP talking point as the long list of whore mongers that has used the line to get elected grows by one this morning.

Please allow me to introduce Slab City to the Slabbed Nation.

Near the shores of California’s Salton Sea, where the road gives way to barren desert, is a place where many have gone to park their troubled lives.

Bill Ammon has lived in what’s known as “Slab City” for 13 years.

“This piece of property is public-owned,” he said, “and it’s so useless, so desolate, that nobody wants it and they let us be here.”

Slab City takes its name from the concrete slabs it sits on — all that’s left from a World War II training camp. Now it is home base for more and more people who can’t afford to live anywhere else.

There are nearly 2,000 people living in Slab City, many refugees of the Great Recession.
