25. So it is our job as a nation to maintain cities
Edited on Sun Oct-25-09 11:18 PM by JonQ
out of pocket that cannot sustain themselves, out of a sense of nostalgia the people living there feel (those that haven't already moved on)? I will have to disagree with that.

Otherwise there are thousands of little towns out west that faltered after the gold rush ended that should have been propped up. Sure they don't serve any purpose, but people like it there and they shouldn't have to move just because the jobs are gone.

Sitting around lamenting that the jobs are gone is not a viable option.

No doubt many areas were hurt when the covered wagon industry collapsed. I imagine though they moved on.
