This is what I notice at the small town where my Dad lives. At least they have a 4-year college there which may be the only thing keeping that town on the map. But otherwise - most streets have old abandoned buildings everywhere. You just see decline, and nothing done to clean up property going to ruin.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
