    No, Darlin', you are wrong. It WAS a social program created by Franklin Roosevelt to help get people back to work and out of the Depression. So it was, therefore, an economic program that was Federally funded.

    Sorry. I was raised in Chattanooga, TN and I KNOW how much lower electricity was due to the Tennessee River being damned up. Really weird though--roads disappearing into the lake that were eventually used for launching boats but, even stranger than that, was the cemeteries where an occasional casket with a body in it would float to the surface. This was due to the water being backed up over the land, including cemeteries. The bodies were supposed to have been removed for reburial, but sometimes somebody was missed!
