chronology: Mississippi Income Tax to be fazed out in 2022.
Well that is the plan anyway. The Old Cultured State is planning to experiment with no income tax to promote economic growth.
Well among the fastest growing economies in the world at the moment are Rhawanda, Bangladesh and three other Third World countries. It really is difficult to see the fine folks of Mississippi racing with emerging countries like the current world leaders in growth.
The world's leading economies include countries like Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark etc. Perhaps the Grand Old State can learn from them how they run taxes and lead the world business.
chronology: American Civil War battlefields are often places where people see, or think they see ghosts.
But the same kind of events happen in England. While driving in a taxi through Otterburn in the North of England Dorethy Strong suddenly found the taxi engine stopping. She and the driver were then sat in the darkness. Then around them, dozens of soldiers appeared in old style clothes. They looked bedraggled and exhausted. They were walking around turning over dead bodies of other soldiers lying on the ground. It was as if they were looking for some one. Then suddenly all the soldiers vanished.
Otterburn had been a battle fought 600 years ago. It was a bloody event with thousands killed on both sides. Ghosts from the battle are often seen at the battlefield there.
chronology: U.S. Army Bases to be renamed?
After the Civil War Americans bent over backwards to promote reconciliation between the the former apposing States.
One way to show friendship was to name United States Army Camps after Southern Generals. Most African Americans serving in the Camps often had no idea who the Camp was named after and if they became aware never lost much sleep about the name of the Camp.
But with the sharp rise of extreme Right Wing Racism reported by some Unit commanders among the ranks in the Army, Congress has decided to rename the Camps.
The Marines have already begun an Audit of location names in it's durisdictions and plans to remove any names that would be considered offensive. As yet the Army has no plans to remove any names from Camps.
chronology: Sad news for Whale lovers.
10 young Sperm Whales have beached at Hull on the North Sea Coast today.

chronology: Our thoughts and prayers are with the fine people of Nashville tonight.
A huge explosion rocked the city a few hours ago.
FBI and ATF Agents are hard at work right now despite the holidays. Let's all wish Federal Agents every success in gathering facts regarding this blast.
chronology: More Dogman sightings than usual.
If there is a subject guaranteed to be exasperating to most Americans, it is stories of Dogmen. They usually say such stories are utterly preposterous and cannot be taken seriously. But are they?
As this year ends, Dogman sightings have been noted from all over the world. Typically a Dogman looks like werewolfs seen in Hollywood movies. People often stumble across Dogmen as the strange beasts are chowing down on Roadkill. When the Dogman looks up as it eats the roadkill, people are left with no doubt they have seen something strange.
People living in remote country homes have reported Dogmen trying to break into their home.
One man who has spent decades trying to find Dogmen is convinced that there are such beings. He says there are too many reports from too many sensible people to dismiss the possibility that such a being is real.
Don't know wireclubbers, while most Americans today are open to UFOs being real, and ghosts. Dogmen just seem to be too out there for most folks. But how do we explain all the many reports of strange beings said to be Dogmen?
chronology: This date in 1996 Jonbenet Ramsey is found dead in Colorado.
The case remains unsolved and has prompted endless speculation.
chronology: This date in 2006 at least 300 people killed while scavenging gasoline in Nigeria.
The tragedy happened after a gang opened up a gas pipeline and filled a tanker with stolen gasoline. Locals noticed the pipeline could still be tapped after the gang left and hundreds of people gathered around the puncture filling gas cans and buckets with gas. But soon the ground around the puncture was saturated with gas and large puddles of gas were everywhere.
Something ignited the spilled gas and the area erupted in a huge fire ball killing at least 300 people. Nigerian Police say the number of people killed could be as high as 500.
chronology: Old South values respond to Bombing in Nashville.
Courage and Charity are just core values of Old Dixie and both are still seen today as folks in Tennessee respond to bombing.
Nashville Police and emergency Services are being praised for their courage and self sacrifice in responding to the bomb. And Nashville volunteers have rallied to help people effected by the destruction of the bomb.
chronology: For most people, New York City Times Square is the place to be on New Year's Eve. People of all races, religion's, social classes count down the seconds to New Year in the Big Apple.
But for Scottish folks there is only one place to be on New Year's Eve, Scotland. Edinburgh and Glasgow are filled with happy Scots who seem to consume astonishing amounts of whisky and sing Auld Langs Syne.
Perhaps no other people in the world celebrate New Year like Scott's.
But will Covid lock Scottish people at home in miserable solitude? Frankly wireclubers I see no chance on earth of that happening. But for the sake of international image anyway, Scotland will possibly be posing in front of TV cameras wearing masks and saying how they miss their normal New Year Parties. But as everyone who knows Scottish people will say, Scott's will be discreetly gathering to raise glasses of whisky and sing together.
chronology: Fans of Pompeii in for a treat.
The former Roman Town of Pompeii is one of the world's most popular tourist attractions. People seem wonderstruck by the uncanny preservation of the town.
Well a fast food snack bar has been discovered in the ruins of the town, and when tourists are flying around the world again they can visit the snack shop when it is open for public viewing.
It seems like the Romans had small fast food places almost identical to American snack bars.
chronology: Loyalist fighter Billy Right is assassinated this date in 1997.
Some friends of Mr Right insist there was collusion between Irish Nationalists and British and Irish Authorities in the assassination of Mr Right. They say Mr Right's uncompromising stand against any peace agreement prompted Authorities in London and Dublin to assassinate him.
However a Inquiry into his death found no evidence of collusion, but was critical of the security of prisoners in the Maize Prison.
Before his death Mr Right told friends he had found Jesus Christ and became a born again Christian. He spent long hours reading the history of violence among people and studied Irish History.
chronology: Jim Jones hands out Bibles.
There have been many stories about Cult Leader Jim Jones. One man recalls one time when people in the People's Temple in Guyana told Jones there was no toilet paper left. Jones handed over a stack of Bibles to the people and told them to use the bible pages to wipe down after going to the toilet. Toilets in the camp were then using Bible pages as toilet paper.
chronology: Americans have become CSI sleuths.
Across America folks are using home PCs to analyse images of the Nashville RV bomb vehicle. Some say they can see something placed on the passenger seat that looks like a bomb.
But people don't seem to realise they are seeing the RV some time before the blast as it drove through Nashville. According to some local folks the RV was parked up fot 24 hours before it exploded.
FBI Professionals now suspect it may have been a suicide bombing. Although some local folks believe the Internet was the target. I know that building he parked his bomb outside and it contained 3 major Web Hubs, said one man. Web services are still disrupted in Tennessee. Somewhere in Old Dixie there may have been a major robbery connected to this blast.
Officials in Washington DC may soon receive details of some theft linked to the blast. But the details may not be made public.
chronology: Tennessee Authorities say suspected Bomber died in Blast.

chronology: Into the jaws of death.
Police Officers face death every day. Whether in Los Angeles or San Francisco, or Nashville Tennessee. All over the world in fact. But even most Police Officers would be surprised at the tragedy that killed three fellow officers in Blackpool Lancashire 39 year's ago.
Event's started to unfold when Henry, a pet terrier dog was being taken for a walk along Blackpool promenade. Suddenly Henry jumped into the stormy sea to get his ball that had been blown into the pounding waves. 30 minute's later 4 people would be dead.
Henry's owner jumped into the roaring waves to try and save Henry. The waves were ten feet high, the wind strong and freezing like the water. A man who saw the dog walker try and rescue his pet called Police. Soon two Officers attended, first one Officer, then another jumped into the waves trying to pull the dog owner and dog to safety. Both officers were soon struggling to save themselves. Another passing Patrol car heard the Radio call and pulled up to assist the now endangered fellow officer's, he too leapt into the raging water, like the two officers before him he was soon drowning himself. A fourth Officer dived into the waves to save his comrades but was smashed against the sea wall and knocked out. He was pulled to safety by onlookers. He only survived because a doctor was passing by and gave assistance. 4 people had died in a matter of minutes.
A Senior Police Officer with Lancashire Police later commented that Offers have now been retrained in how to respond to incidents like fatal incident.
chronology: This date 1890 , tragedy at wounded knee.
A small dispute between two Trooper's of the U.S.Cavalry and a deaf elderly man of the First Nation people spirals out of control and led to the death of 300 First Nation people.
A United States Army Inquiry was critical of how the soldiers at the scene had managed the procedure for detaining the First Nation people, but the Army accepted that the tragic events were not deliberately initiated by the cavalry. . The Army concluded it was a muddled preparations for positioning the machine guns, combined with the position for removing weapons from the First Nation people that combined to create a disaster out of minor dispute.
However many U.S. Trooper's present insisted that there was nothing accidental about the Indians actions, they deliberately began firing at the Cavalry .
chronology: This date in 1972, the greatest ghost haunting mystery in Aviation begins outside Miami when Eastern Airlines Flight 401 crashes on approach to Miami Airport.
Bob Loft and Dan Repo were the two pilot's flying the plane, and over the next 10 year's people would insist they had seen the two pilot's on plane's flown by Eastern.
But it took some time for the strange haunting to become known outside Eastern. This was due to the complicated work life of Air Crew's. They would move from plane to plane flying all over the world. And at the time there was no internet so it was impossible for crew's to exchange or confirm the unerving sightings of the ghost's of the two pilot's.
Eastern Airlines have always been steadfast in their official position that the ghost stories of the flight crews were just rumours and gossip and nothing more. But one man who managed to track down flight crew's found that some crew members were convinced that they had seen the two pilot's on Aircraft flown by Eastern.
The haunting of Eastern Planes became the biggest ever Ghost mystery of Aviation. But Eastern insisted it was all 'Blarney' and nothing more.
chronology: In a few days it will be 35 year's since Flight 980 crashed in Bolivia.
For some folks Eastern 980 is a subject for conspiracy theories, but there seems little mysterious about the plane loss. It crashed into a high mountain while en route to Miami. And it was high indeed. 6000 metres high. The aircraft had smashed into snow drift which buried most of the wreckage. A curious point was that no bodies were found at all. A brief visit to the Crash site a few days after the jet crashed, but the Black Box could not be found. One of the men on the visit said there was not even any wreckage visible. He said the Crash site stank of gasoline but he could not see any aircraft wreckage. Bad weather, thin air meant the Search team did not hang around. Another Search team later said they found suitcases and some personal effects, but not one body.
Inevitably people have speculated on the reason for the Crash, but it was most likely caused by the pilot changing direction to avoid bad weather, he flew streight into a mountain. Some speculate that there was a Bomb on board, but there is no evidence at all for a Bomb. Over the year's some people have claimed to find human bones in the Crash area, but there is nothing to link the bones to the crash. And curiously the bones were not taken back to Bolivian Officials for identification.
Strange story wirreclubbers.
chronology: Was Nashville another 'Dresden Green Vault' style Hiest?
Conspiracy Theories are being shopped around regarding the Blast in Nashville Tennessee that shut down huge region's of the South East Internet. In a way the Nashville blast seems possible to consider similar to the Green Vault Hiest in Dresden Germany. In Dresden it was not the Web that was shut down, it was the electric power supply that was taken out. The Robbers started a fire in a small junction box not far from the Museum. The power outage then disabled the Alarm Systems in the Museum. During the outage the Robbers broke into and robbed priceless jewelry and Art works.
In Washington DC FBI Officials and Tennessee Law Enforcement are are still investigating the circumstances of the crime, but with so many Alarm Systems and remote Security Devices being Web based these days it is possible that a Dresden style robbery took place somewhere in the South East USA a few days ago.
Well with the Dresden Robbers pocketing a cool one Billion dollars, some claim even more in fact, was that the real reason for Nashville Internet being blown to Kingdom come?
Well it certainly seems possible wirreclubbers. FBI Agent's will be faced with a huge investigation that will likely go on for year's.
Fort Knox is virtually as safe as any building can be made so some break in to that huge stash of Gold and priceless item's can be ruled out. FBI and Tennessee Officials will be forced to keep all details of whatever happened in strict secrecy until Authorities can restructure all Web based security and monitoring. Silicon valley in California were probably shaken by the Nashville Tennessee web shutdown. The Internet was designed to survive and carry on during a Nuclear War. So if it was shut down by some 'Bubbers' from the South ripping off a huge Gold Vault they will be shaken indeed.
chronology: Suicides among British soldiers baffles Army.
At one time suicide was a sad but rare event amongst Britain's soldiers, but today the numbers are running higher than any previous time, and even stranger as the size of the Army has been reduced. In just 8 weeks 6 member's or recently demobilised member's of the Army either shot or hanged themselves.
Every year around 17 serving soldiers kill themselves, and 70 former member's comit suicide.
The Army is said to be baffled by the fatalities. When enquiries are made after the deaths the investigation is always told that the men were happy and gave no indication of being depressed or suicidal. The most common method of death is hanging, but also gunshot. The number of suicides has doubled at a time that the Army has been considerably downsized, so the trend is more serious than it appears.
A number of death's at Deepcut Army Camp from suicide prompted discussion about military suicides. But the current surge in death's is thought of as'weird' by Service persons. Since the suicides at Deepcut Civilian and Military Police have drawn up new procedures for investigation of military suicides.
