A full house attended a town meeting hosted by Sen. Roger Wicker in Meridian Tuesday night. Wicker answered questions from dozens of locals.

Questions concerned issues like energy and oil drilling, the railroad industry and how Meridian contributes to that, and the recent mortgage crisis.

"The vast majority of people I talk to said it would be a total disaster for our economy if Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae failed, and that we needed to take that step to keep it from happening," Wicker said.

Wicker said Mississippi ranks fourth in the nation for delinquent mortgages.
