Not only must we confront the uncontrolled sprawl of dead-end suburbs and the boom and future bust of Best Buys, but we must suffer the destruction of tactile records of our accomplishments and failures. The loss of the mystic. the historic. The old structures that give a sense of place to anotherwise faceless plain, cornfield, or future stretch of asphalt.

Enough flowery flop. It just pisses me off to see the downtowns of small cities fall to pieces. To see landmarks fall from lack of use, and then be paved over.
