Just a few miles outside of Iuka, Mississippi, I came across a bait-beer-ice store just before a large steel bridge.
Behind the counter on a bar stool sat an elderly man eating boiled peanuts from a paper sack.
Pointing towards the river I asked, "So what's on the other side?"
He pushed back the bill of his John Deere cap and said, "Son, I've lived here my whole life…..I ain't never been over that bridge."
