Interview with Judge John Minor Wisdom
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

…A LITTLE MINI PORTRAIT AS YOU WERE DOING WITH THE OTHER PEOPLE OF GOVERNOR BARNETT?

Judge John Minor Wisdom:

Well, I regarded Barnett as a weasel of the worst sort. Here was a man who had given his word countless number of times to Bobby Kennedy that he would avoid bloodshed, by having his troopers withdrawn by, not be necessary for any force, he was admitting, and then when it came to doing it, he backed down. Now Barnett never showed up in our court. He did not show up in our court. So that I know him only from TV but there was a weasel if ever there was one. He did no good to the state of Mississippi.
