Here is a story bound to reinforce a stereotype or two:
As residents of Picayune struggled to cope with the after effects of hurricane Katrina, coupled with boredom, they found themselves in the midst of a ban on beer and ammunition. The only thing keeping some citizens of Picayune occupied or pacified was now banned. As of Thursday the ban on beer has been lifted, but the ban on ammunition will continue until Picayune has 100 percent electricity, said Deputy Chief Tom Milar, of the Picayune Police Department. "It will probably be lifted this week," said Milar. The ban was put into effect on Sunday, which restricted the sale of all beer until Thursday when it was lifted, said Gina Jordan, an employee at Mickey's No. 2. In spite of the ban, access to beer could still be gained outside of Picayune. "They were going to Caston's (in Hancock County) and getting it anyway," said Milar.
