I want to know how is the Mississippi Delta region coming along with recent development, such as new housing and job creations. I want to know how these projects are affecting the people in the area. I have been reading the region is compared to a "third-world" region, where most people in Mississippi rarely leaved the state. I wondered if this is true.

Yes, its all true. Everything you hear about Mississippi is true. We are so poor, dumb, ignorant, fat, worthless, uneducated, and any thing else you can think of.
We are really lower than any third world country. Please send help. Perhaps the ex governor of illinois could come down and help us out.

If you look at Grasshopper's past posts over the last 2 years you get the idea that he really isn't interested in answers to his repeated questions.

I am curious about the old Greenville bridge. Supposedly it was dangerous to barge traffic because of the current coming around the curve to the north of the bridge. I have never been there, but looking at pictures, it seems there would be enought time to make the necessary adjustments.

big d, I don't know what the distance is from the bridge to the curve northward but I'm sure there are a lot of factors that affect navigation. When the water is low there are a lot of sandbars that pop up that they have to maneuver through, and the current is always strong which adds to it.

Also, I looked up the size of the barges that they push. A maximum load can consist of 40+ barges which is approximately 1200 feet long. They take up about 6 acres of area. That's a lot to steer.
