Hazard in fiction

Hazard was immortalised as the setting of the Richard Marx song "Hazard", which told the tale of a disenfranchised young man, who, because he had no father, was an easy target for prejudice. He befriended a young woman called Mary, who subsequently disappeared, leaving the protagonist as the chief suspect. The name was arrived at by Richard Marx thanks to his liking for the lyric "this old Nebraska town." He wrote to Nebraska Chamber of Commerce, asking for a list of Nebraska towns - Hazard was perfect for his needs.
