    Thank you for this thoughtful consideration of the decline of or disappearance of small towns/communities. There are many pressures, not the least of the declining commitment of a state to support (subsidize) smaller communities due, apparently, to a lack of belief that small communities matter. Then, there is the issue of small town people wanting their small towns but instead of paying an extra dollar per gallon of milk in the small town, they seek best price wherever they can find it….generally in bigger towns at big box stores. We simply don’t walk the talk of small town/community value. Thus, we must not really value them.
