THE PRESIDENT:  No, I’ve been talking to Mississippi.  I’ve talked to the mayor.  I’ve talked to the congressman.  And I’ve encouraged — we have — we’ve offered every single thing available to Mississippi.  The governor has to act.  There is money to deal with this problem.  And — but I just — we’re waiting for — we’ve given them EPA, the — we’ve given them everything there is to offer.
