    This is medieval. It never ceases to amaze me how lost this country as a whole is and how even more lost its government is. To anyone with any sense get the hell out of Mississippi while you still can! 'Medieval Mississippi!' should be in place of 'Mississippi' on all new maps of Mississippi and/or Customized License plates for all to see.
