Dorothy Moore: Giving It Straight To You
Bill Carpenter, Goldmine, 14 March 1997
MISSISSIPPI HAS probably been trashed more than any other darn state in the union. It's been called the poorest state (which sho' ain't a crime, but then again, ain't cause to brag) and some have called it the birthplace of incest (they just talkin', they don't got no reeaaal proof! Forget those Faulkner novels). Of course, the state's most notorious bete noire stems from its blatantly racist past.
