(via America’s Fading Main Streets - The Daily Beast)  Having done loops from the Midwest to the West Coast to the East Coast and back – this is all so terribly true. There is a hollowness an despair in almost small to dying town we/ve traveled through. Things do change, but here is poorly managed change if ever. Main Street is basically dead. Any surviving ones are endangered by sprawl and the car. Everyone basically goes to the mall, to get the maudlin prints of main streets with old cars, gas stations and malt shops. It’s like framing an image of an animal that’s been hunted into extinction.
