17. Has this gotten really bad in the last five years?
Census data for 2000 show Anderson with a vacancy rate slightly below the national average of 9 percent (!). Could this be just a symptom of a nationwide, or at least region-wide, problem, or has it taken a sharp turn for the worse during the Bush** era?

I've always wanted to redesign a declining city like this along progressive lines (good transportation, green housing, local business rather than Sprawl-mart, etc.) but this might not be the one; I'm trying to imagine myself in the midst of all those fundies every summer...
