12. The ultimate impact of the continuing urbanization and immigration
is that some of the southern towns 'ways of doing things' is being incremently changed. The newcomers don't put up with the oft-time stagnant status quo; they tend to be progressives. I've been seeing this in the town I live in now for at least the past 5 years. The natives are getting dissatisfied with being perceived as backwards and are making progress, albeit slow progress. Education and awareness are still the keys to progress.
