  1. In the area of Missouri where I’ve got some family, the jobs dried up (probably 20+ years ago) and the towns are all boarded up, with a few dilapidated houses left. I always wonder how the few remaining residents in these little communities make it work.

  2. I’ve done route 66 a couple of times. St Louis never fails to bum me out. The pictures show the archway; not the truth. Actually, lots of parts of old 66 are depressing as hell.

  3. Petersburg, VA. It’s so sad. The only reason they have any type of economy is because their old towne section caters to bougie white people who cross the bridge to shop at boutiques and eat, then hightail it back across the River
