DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Residents of McComb, Miss., want help from their city, but they'd be fine getting it from Santa Claus. There's a big pothole on the street, and someone has made it obvious - they've decked the hole with tinsel, a star and a yellow traffic cone. The Enterprise-Journal reports residents want to protest with lights and presents, too, all in hopes that one holy night, a special visitor will leave pavement under that Christmas cone.
