A long time ago in Mississippi, James Williams' life started to unravel.  His life was a pretty good one.  When he finished up his chores at home, he would go into town and help his father at the store.  He was proud of his father and proud that the store was the gathering place for most of the town's men.  But then James learns what the men are talking about.  This can't be true, can it?
