Is DeSoto County unfortunate? U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) thinks so, because of its location.
Sen. Wicker said Thursday during a committee confirmation hearing that DeSoto County had the misfortune to be located south of Memphis, Tenn.
He said those who live in DeSoto County have the misfortune to be living close to Memphis. He was making a larger point about air quality and how DeSoto County gets lumped into Memphis metro because of its location.
