Description

Since 1991 the government has poured more than $200 billion into the impovrished Mississippi River Delta, but programs have "failed to acheive their ambition goals," Jeff Porter reports. Goals set for reducing teen pregnancy to match the national average, providing accesss to adequate water, sewage disposal, fire protection and economically stabilizing minority and small family farms, were not met. The articles examine successes and faliures in small towns in the Delta.
