Letter To The Editor
Allow me to start by saying how excited I am to share my feelings and thoughts about The Mississippi Link newspaper on the occasion of its 23rd anniversary.
I, along with my wonderful wife, am the proud owner of Tony and Tina’s Exclusive Salon, where the good gossip never stops. Several years ago, one of my best friends and clients, Jackie Hampton, and I were talking about the never ending days of horrible news that we have to listen to day in and day out and little to my knowledge did I know I was conversing with the publisher of The Mississippi Link. All the customers in the shop were listening to our conversation and making similar comments.
I expressed to Ms. Hampton how wonderful it would be to read or hear some good news for a change and she told me about The Mississippi Link. Without hesitation, I immediately became a subscriber. Every issue I receive is of course filled with a variety of types of things, but to this day, I love reading every issue. The paper is just full of attributes and features of many overlooked amazing minorities doing great things all over the state of Mississippi and beyond. I often refer to The Mississippi Link as “The Good News paper.”
There are so many opportunities here that go unknown but the minute I pick up the paper, I just get so excited. From start to finish, each page is filled with accomplishments and informative articles from religion to entertainment to sports, health, education, and of course, classifieds. It tells you about what is going on locally, statewide and nationally. I could go on and on, but I just want to say to the staff of The Mississippi Link, thank you for your contribution to the state and the world. I encourage any and everyone to subscribe to this amazing newspaper. Thank you Mississippi Link and thank you Jackie Hampton for being a great publisher and listener.
Sincerely, Tony Brown
