Small towns in rough times
So, what's going to happen to our little prairie towns in these difficult economic times?
For once, we rural folks may benefit from being so completely out of the loop.

Few of us work for large companies so as corporations lay off workers, the pain will fall on the cities and suburbs more than on the countryside.
