No, we don't have a "hickly" part of town here. It's either fake suburb, cookie cutter houses/abandoned steel mills/ghetto.

You have to go pretty far out to see cows and such.

Hey, #2.

And I don't even live there anymore to drag it down.



From the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine...

Once known as Steeltown, home for more than a century to one of the nation's most thriving industries, in recent years Youngstown has acquired a number of nicknames that better capture its present state. Struggle City. The Armpit of Ohio. Murdertown. Billboards rising along the highways encourage fathers not to abandon their children; others advertise the services of bail bondsmen. Thirty percent of Youngstown residents live below the poverty line. The unemployment rate is nearly three times the national average, and the median household income less than half. The grim statistics reflect a state of protracted desperation that first came to define the city more than 30 years ago, on September 19th, 1977, a day known locally as "Black Monday." It was then that the region's largest steel company, Youngstown Sheet and Tube, announced massive layoffs, an event that signaled the end of the steel economy and the dawn of an era marked by the disappearance of thousands of jobs and the prevalence of so much Mafia-related crime that the term "Youngstown tuneup" became common slang used to describe those assassinated by car bombs.

Armpit of Ohio is a new one. Never heard it before.

Car bombings take me back to my youth.

(Sigh)

I take it you haven't seen a Rays game yet. They are anything but, boring. I know they don't walk, bunt the man over, then hit a Texas leaguer to score a run but, come on!!!
