It is official. The town is a Ghetto.

Webster definition:
3.b. a situation that resembles a ghetto especially in conferring inferior status or limiting opportunity.

It ain't ever coming back.

There's not enough money in town, businesses, or people willing to cooperate to make this town better. In a couple of decades it will be a ghost town.

Every time there is a new business, it gets shut down in a few months, mainly due to lack of interest and funds. The only stores people are interested in anymore are the dollar stores, pawn shops, gas stations, and cigarette outlets. Guitarnia didn't even last a year. The hippie store is history. Gardner's candy is gone. Then it was So sweet or something like that? Now it's basically another goodwill. We'll see how long that lasts. Maybe since it serves a good purpose it will last a while, but we'll see. Thieve's market might not last much longer. We have no variety in this town anymore.

It'd be cool if we could get more places to explore, hang out, get jobs, etc. But the reality is our town is so poor it can't have things like that. And there arent many people willing to help out either.

So yes. It's official. It's a ghetto. And soon it will be history.

The problem is, people go out of town to do business.

This town has always had a problem with their own doing well. We've been ingrained that anything in town is inferior to a State College business. No one wants their neighbor's business to profit, next thing you know their Honda's a Lincoln, don't want to see that. Screw all but six. Unless you've got blood ties to the original jewish-owned factories and stores, or the old coal barons, then by all means, kiss their posterior until your lips bleed. Follow that money. Oh well, it's a nice place to live but I wouldn't want to visit here.
