RE: How have things changed (or not) for small towns in America?
I lived for a year when I was 9 in a town of about 200 people and loved it. It was great for a child in the early 1940s as there was unfettered freedom and support in and from the community. My mother hated living there, and I can now understand why. I've not lived in a town of less than 25,000 since then and most of my adult life have lived in large cities, so my experience with small towns is not current. However, when I visited a cousin in a small town similar to the one I lived in for that year about 10 years it ago, it took me back in time. Things seemed to be very much as they were when I was 9 and that's not all bad.
