Small Town America...
...is dying. I can feel it. Maybe I let it die by moving to the City. I had always wanted to leave the city and return to small town america where I grew up, now I don't feel that's going to happen because there's nothing there for me - especially work. I had thought the internet age would have made it different but after watching CBS Sunday Morning this past Sunday it seems like it may have been too late. 50% of Americans used to live in rural America and now that number is less than 25% and the older people have not taken hold of the internet age and the jobs in those towns have not become the type to attract young people. So - everyone in Small Town America is old, not reproducing, and eventually the whole thing will be gone...gone.
