    You know it's bad when farmers would rather see an entire town underwater than have their precious fields flooded.

    You know it's bad when they had to close Harrah's here in Tunica on Sunday.
    But we did get a chance to eat at Paula Deen's buffet on Friday night, which turned out to be a culinary must!

    ALL great river FLOOD CONTROL, however cleverly designed by man, is temporary.

    If you really want to make mother nature laugh...build a levee.

    No one who gets flood money this year should ever be eligible for it again.

    It is plainly obvious where the floodplain is. Only those big government loving handout reliant folks should be rebuilding on site.

    Not like we are the Low Countries.
