For many people in Yazoo City, MS the big story is the flooding. The farmers had been looking for a big year after the disappointing previous year. All the fields were ready and then the floods came dashing their hopes. The waters are now receding but things are still grim.
While the flooding is happening, all is not well in Yazoo City political circles. In fact the city may have their own Michael Vick in their midst. Rumors are floating around town of a police officer arresting an alderman at an illegal dog fight. The rumor also says the police officer was fired the next day. And the local newspaper is silent on this matter.
