17. It is pretty bleak everywhere in US towns.
Recently did trip across country by car. Along the Interstates are all these "service areas" that intersect a road leading to a small town. Once these service areas were just gas and lodging. Now they include fast food and even supermarkets and malls. The towns providing labor for these services are now full of low wage workers, while all the town's small motels and shops etc. are pretty much out of business. These towns are really declining. And it is every where I went in every State. I always knew when I was approaching a new town because I started to see the same things over again. It was a grim eyeopener.
