Lobbyists promote dumb ass atheist interests and agenda in Mississippi. A national secular group is planning to have a lobbying interest in Mississippi by January to advance atheist views. Which is nothing.
The group, SCA focuses on legislation that attempts to insert religion, religious privileging or religiously based discrimination into laws, or uses taxpayer funding to support, promote religion or religious beliefs. SCA already lobbies Congress and federal agencies in Washington. __________________________________
In other news: MS. Lawsuit:
Students with disabilities have been disproportionately suspended and placed in alternative school at higher rates than their peers.Those are allegations made by The Southern Poverty Law Center, specifically against Jackson Public Schools, but advocates for students with disabilities say similar problems occur across the state.
The problems in Jackson and the alleged failure by the state Department of Education to hold the district accountable are the focus of a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court. Those with learning disabilities don’t receive the help they need, so they fall further behind. They’ve been unlawfully removed from their classrooms, denied services that would help with their disabilities, and denied the free and appropriate public education guaranteed to them by federal law.
Yes I know. Disability Rights of Mississippi and the Southern Disability Law Center are suing the state Department of Education for allegedly failing to enforce a requirement that JPS students with disabilities receive needed special education services. A spokesman for the state Department of Education would not comment on the lawsuit because it is pending litigation.
“It’s a district where we have consistently received a large volume of complaints about students with disabilities not receiving the services and education that they need and that they’re entitled to,” said Vanessa Carroll, senior staff attorney for the SPLC. ______________________________________________________

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was a big moment in American television history, but it isn’t the biggest, according to a new study. The Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack is by far the most memorable moment shared by television viewers during the past 50 years, concluded the study, released on Wednesday.
The Kennedy assassination and its aftermath in 1963 came in second place, but that was only for the people aged 55 and over who experienced those events as they happened instead of replayed as an historical artifact.
By that measure, the Sept. 11 tragedy was nearly twice as impactful as the second-ranked moment, which was the coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Minutes after the first airplane struck New York’s World Trade Center on a late summer morning, television networks began covering the events continuously and stayed with them for days.
Going into the study, Siegel said he had anticipated that entertainment events like the final episode of “M-A-S-H” (ranked No. 42), the Beatles’ appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” (No. 43) and the “Who shot J.R.?” episode of “Dallas” (No. 44) would rank higher. Instead, television coverage of news events made the biggest difference in viewers’ lives.
The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched TV event, with this year’s game between the N.Y. Giants and New England Patriots setting an all-time record with 111 million viewers. The memories don’t seem to linger, however: the top-ranked Super Bowl Sunday event in Sony’s study came in 2004 and had nothing to do with football. It was Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction (No. 26)………………..
Where are they now? Nothing new on some folks who, uh, uh, appeared to have gotten in a little trouble with law enforcement and we here at Classvictim said would submerged below radar. So, where are they now?
