FROM A RECENT FEATURE FOR AUBURN ALUMNI MAG:
Taylor, Mississippi’s about 15 minutes outside Oxford down Old Taylor Road. The road twists and bends through pastoral greenery and sudden tilled fields toward the town. Might be best to say Taylor’s a village. Population’s right around 500. The main street, much as it is such, is a 100-yard bend in the road consisting of what might be an antique shop, a house, two abandoned buildings, a brown-bricked post office, and a restaurant. Standing in the street, it’s hard to tell the difference between in use and out of service. Of course, standing in the street isn’t something one should do, as it’s 103, breezeless, cloudless, and the sun’s radiating hate for all flesh. READ THE REST HERE
