Small Town Mississippi City Offices, can I help you?” “Good morning. We have no water. Is it us or is it everybody?’ Laughter. “It’s Everybody. There’s a broke line. They’re working on it.” “Okay! Thank you!” From the way she said it, it sounds more like they’re working on finding it than actually working on
