This Old Land Mass called Mississippi

While covering Isaac on Sunday, The Weather Channel referred to Mississippi as “the land mass” between New Orleans and Mobile.

This did not go unnoticed by fans of social media. A Facebook page called The Land Mass Between NOLA and Mobile was created Sunday and had more than 34,000 likes by Monday afternoon. It quickly became a repository for Mississippians’ dismay over being neglected or forgotten, a feeling that lingers from Hurricane Katrina and is perpetuated when coverage cranks up each year from The City that Care Forgot for the monster storm’s anniversary.
