    Since I’m procrastinating and waiting for a client callback, I went sleuthing.

    M&M Publishing of Hattiesburg is listed in a number of on-line sources as the owner of that phone number. Not to be confused with M&M Meats, M&M Water, M&M Sod, M&M Learning Factory, M&M Concrete, M&M Glass, M&M Construction or M&M Aviation. All of Hattiesburg.

    M&M is apparently Mark and Marsha Olderr, the co-founders. In defense of their inability to correctly spell the name of Hattiesburg’s favorite son, they are relatively newcomers to the area, moving there in 2000. Mark’s from South Dakota of all places and Marsha hails from Virginia.

    More on the Olderrs and how they apparently came to have some excess inventory of “Hattiesburg, 1884-2009: Challenges and Growth, Historic Past and Brilliant Future” can be found here:

    Oops. Phone’s ringing.
