BREAKING: Mississippi bans slavery.

An immigrant from India, inspired by the movie Lincoln, did some research and discovered that the state of Mississippi never officially ratified the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which bans slavery. 

Ranjan Batra, who is an associate professor of neurobiology and anatomical sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, went home after seeing the movie and went to the site USConstitution.net. There, he discovered a footnote on ratification of the amendment that said: "Mississippi ratified the amendment in 1995, but because the state never officially notified the US Archivist, the ratification is not official."

Wait, 1995?

It turns out that Mississippi refused to ratify the amendment in the 1860s, then forgot all about it until 1995. When lawmakers in the 1990s realized that the state still hadn't ratified it, they voted to do so. But for reasons unknown, the state never filed their ratification with the federal government, which is the final step in the process. 

Now, thanks to Batra, the state of Mississippi has notified the US Archivist, thereby officially banning slavery.

Great food and service. Love the sushi. The only problem is they don't deliver. No thai restaurant in the Birmingham/Hoover area delivers.
