I’m not the biggest fan of being on screen; I honestly never remember whether to look at the camera or not, and get twitchy about it. But I was honored to do this episode of “Mapping a Modern Mississippi” for the uber-creative Mississippi Museum of Art. I love talking about Mississippi, and especially Jackson’s potential. I believe strongly that all of us need to believe strongly in the possibility of change here, and then just make it happen. Yes, we have to cut through the cynicism and the tendency of too many people here to “attack their own,” so to speak. (It comes with our historic territory, I believe: inferiority complexes and all that.)
And the crew liked my “toy office.” She who dies with the most toys, and tchotchkes, wins, you know.
