In remotest Miss., the forgotten wait

Associated Press

BOND, Miss. - This place isn't a town or a city, just a name on a green signpost along the highway that means little to people who don't live here.

But people do live here, back among the pines, in small houses and single-wide trailers. Most are black, and most are poor, and they have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

But they have been forgotten. They have no food, no water, no gasoline, no electricity, and little hope of getting any anytime soon.
