I’ve spent the last month and more in a town that once had over 30,000 people living in it, that had the country’s longest bar- it took 80 bartenders, same shift, to keep the clientele happy- that had one of the biggest prize fights in US History and where the guy who built and ran one of the bigger joints left and built Madison Square Garden and which now has maybe just over 200 people living here. To buy gasoline or a quart of milk, you gotta drive over 60 miles, to go see a movie, drive further, to fly anywhere, you gotta go 200 miles.
This place has gone bust and it’s out there.
Here’s a little song I wrote to go with the above photograph-
