Im going to remove some of the content in the "Stay Safe" section. I live in downtown Vicksburg and I have to hear this garbage all the time about how unsafe everything is. I walk around everywhere at all hours. There's a difference between warning potential tourists about being safe and just scaring them with nonsense. -user:Jangle83

The section does seem a bit long for a smaller city. The important thing is to make sure that anything non-obvious to a visitor is called out, so while "don't stumble around drunk at night" should be omitted, "be aware that the woods contain black bears" might be worth mentioning if there is an actual chance of encountering a bear. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:01, 25 April 2011 (EDT)
