The Mississippi Corpse - CyberCorpse 12

From: Buddy Harris <bharris@frognet.net>

I no longer live near the river. It’s the Midwest for me now. I’ve moved from Oxford, Mississippi to Columbus, OH where I’m currently in the MFA program at Ohio State. I’m intrigued by your Mississippi River project. Before moving to Columbus, I received a MA in Southern Studies (an even more fruitless degree than the MFA) and spent two years researching the school system in Tunica County, MS just below Memphis. I’m full of metaphor when it comes to the river and its effects on the lives of people dependent on it.

I’m not sure I fully understand what you’re looking for, but I’ve always envisioned the huge fault line that runs directly through upper Mississippi, Memphis and eastward into Kentucky, finally giving way, opening a trough of muddy water beneath Tunica sucking its casinos and all they’ve built down nature’s vengeful hole.
