A very gentile Southern lady was driving across the Savannah River Bridge in Georgia one day. As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixing (ready) to jump.
She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, "Please don't jump, think of your dear mother and father."
He replied, "Mom and Dad are both dead; I'm going to jump."
She said, "Well, think of your wife and children." He replied, "I'm not married and I don't have any kids."
She said, "Well, think of Robert E. Lee."
He replied, ''Who's Robert E. Lee?''
She replied, ''Well bless your heart, just go ahead and jump, you dumb ass Yankee."

"Mississippi's people are the best thing about our state. Mississippians come from a rich heritage of warm hospitality, great music, literature, sports, art and cultural diversity. Mississippians work hard, love their families and their country, and are generous and giving. One of the things we're most proud of is consistently ranking at the top nationally in per capita charitable giving. We're a poor state, but a generous state. That says a lot about our people." - Mississippi Development Authority
