In Mississippi today, the Jackson County and Ocean Springs chambers of commerce are holding Trent Lott Appreciation Day in order to “honor” a “favorite son.” In their appreciation of the former GOP senator, ThinkProgress hopes the chambers don’t forget to mention Lott’s own appreciation for Strom Thurmond’s segregationist run for President in 1948 or the graceful manner in which Lott retired last year to avoid being trapped by Senate ethics rules.
