How much does water cost in Waldron?

Well, now that it's national news, it's worth mentioning that the mayor of the small town of Waldron has been arrested for trading water for sex. According to news reports, 72-year-old Troy Anderson convinced two women with overdue water bills to sleep with him for anywhere from $20 – $100 per encounter. One woman said this had been going on for 8 – 10 years. 

One is left to wonder how much water costs in Waldron that her bill couldn't be paid in 10 years.

As far as clever coverage goes, CNN does a fair job of writing a headline with: Cops: Mayor tapped water customers for sex

But MSNBC wins the award for tacky humor with : Flushed out: Mayor arrested in water-for-sex scheme
