Meeting digital natives ‘where they are’
Analysis: Guns
and abortion
could be election-
year issues
By EMILY WAGSTER PET TUS 
The Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi lawmakers have
released few significant policy proposals as
they prepare for their three-month session
that begins Tuesday.
This is an election year, and most of the
122 House members and 52 senators will put
their names on the ballot to seek a new four-
year term. A few lawmakers are retiring, and
a few are pursuing statewide offices.
Some of those trying to return to the Cap-
itol are likely to remain relatively quiet in
hopes of not attracting an opponent. Candi-
dates’ qualifying deadline is March 1, about
two-thirds of the way through the session.
Some lawmakers, though, could offer bills
designed to grab headlines and generate
buzz on social media.
Guns and abortion are reliable atten-
tion-getters in Mississippi.

Can Mitt Romney
be an effective
check on Trump?
Now that he’s entering the US Senate as part of the
majority party, Mitt Romney has real power. He also
has some real problems with Donald Trump, which the
former Massachusetts governor laid out in a buzzy op-
ed in The Washington Post on Wednesday that trashed
Trump’s handling of the presidency and promised that
Romney would “speak out” against “statements or
actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant,
dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions.”
Speaking out, of course, is grand — and publishing
such a scathing op-ed on the eve of his swearing-in sent
an encouraging symbolic message. But the bigger test
is whether Romney, who was elected in November to
represent Utah, will actually put some of his new power
behind those words. If he does, he can help both the
country and the Senate weather the Trump presidency.
That’s a big if, and here in Massachusetts it’s easy to
