IS THE KARMIC RESULT OF DECADES OF SLAVE OWNING IN MISSISSIPPI BAD CELL PHONE SERVICE?

My cell phone connection with my daughter was on-again, off-again as she drove through Mississippi on her way to back FSU, this morning. After our third or fourth lost connection and recall, I said to her "I'll call you back in a couple of hours and I believe that bad cell phone service in Mississippi is probably the Karmic result of decades of slave owning." I was only half kidding.

Bad cell phone service in Vermont (my sister lives there) is the result of Vermont's refusal to put a cell phone tower on top of every mountain. Vermonters believe that cell phone towers are unsightly. Vermont is also unhappy with McDonald's golden arches. Years ago, I followed the golden arches into New Hampshire from Vermont to buy hot chocolate and a Big Mac. Back on the Vermont side of the river, I realized I'd missed a turn and I tried to call my brother-in-law for directions. No service. Finally, I exited the Interstate and the counterman at the closest convenience store said to me when I asked how far I was from the town my sister lived in: "Waitsfield? You're almost in Canada."

Wikipedia says that Karma boils down to bad intent and bad deed contributing to future suffering (and vice versa). For Mississippi, the Karmic explanation of bad cell phone service makes more sense than the Vermont explanation.
